Abstract:

For this program, five composers were commissioned to set music for one vocalist and one instrumentalist to a John Ashbery poem. A panel discussion with Ashbery and the composers is interspersed with performances of the musical pieces and readings by the poet. Ashbery discusses the influence of music by John Cage, Elliott Carter, and other modern composers on his work, and also the affinity he feels for certain visual artists, including outsider artist Henry Darger, whose work inspired his book Girls on the run. The composers discuss their individual approaches to Ashbery's poems, with Zorn providing more of a musical response than a traditional setting to his chosen section of Girls on the run.
