Programme Note  


For 75 years – since my college days – I have been fascinated by the poetry of William Carlos Williams, the great American poet (and doctor-pediatrician).  So I chose three of his visionary poems for Of Rewaking, a song cycle for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, as a gift to Daniel Barenboim.  The score was commissioned by The Royal Philharmonic Society of London, and was written during 2002.

 

--Elliott Carter
