New Sounds

Poetry Set to Music, I

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

From the classical art songs of Schumann and Schubert that used as their text words by great poets of the day to brand-new Appalachian blues music just recorded by Martha Redbone set to works of William Blake, this New Sounds program explores poetry in song.  Sample from Redbone’s new album, “The Garden of Love - Songs of William Blake” and its hollered melodies, lullabies, and folky mountain takes on the Romantic 18th century English poetry.
