Ego Scriptor Cantilenae: The Music of Ezra Pound (2CD+Booklet)

Label: Other Minds

Format: 2CD + Booklet

Genre: Compositional

In stock


Between 1920 and 1933, the American poet Ezra Pound composed two complete operas and several pieces for solo violin, all in a very personal language that drew from sources as diverse as troubadour music and Igor Stravinsky. The resulting body of music is of surpassing beauty and casts new light on the practice of prosody, the elusive craft of setting texts to music. The first and only available CD recording of its kind, Ego Scriptor Cantilenae features outstanding historical performances from England, the U.S., and Holland, as well as new studio recordings by the Other Minds Ensemble. This deluxe package also includes an 80-page booklet by Pound scholar Margaret Fisher, with previously unpublished photographs.
