Composer's Notes

As an admirer of Louis Zukofsky’s poetry, I have often thought of setting it to music. This was encouraged by recently finding out that Ezra Pound was very impressed by it. So I chose nine short poems and set them for voice and clarinet, the last of which refers to his son Paul, the eminent violinist.
