Myth and legend, music and poetry: these are the artful external expressions of our deepest, truest selves. In setting the written poetry of Louise Glück, Jessica Fisher, Eugenio Montale, and the unspoken poetry of almost-authentic folk songs, John Harbison’s lyric gift illuminates the hidden intersections of mind and body, pattern and disruption.

John Harbison:

Right to Pleasure (NNM commission/world premiere)
Crossroads (NNM co-commission/regional premiere)
Fourteen Fabled Folksongs
Mottetti di Montale (selections)

Gould Rehearsal Hall, Curtis Institute
