William Bolcom has an abiding love for song. He is one of the most exciting and affable composers I know. I met him and his gifted wife, the singer Joan Morris, when I was making my first recordings for RCA Red Seal in the late ’70s. We were all three toiling in the same musical vineyard, recording songs and music-hall ballads from the turn of the century. Today, William Bolcom is celebrated for the broad range of his creative output. He won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Music. His symphonies, concertos, songs and operas are performed throughout the world.
Never more will the wind cherish you again, never more will the rain. Never more shall we find you bright in the snow and wind. The snow is melted, the snow is gone, and you are flown: like a bird out of our hand, like a light out of our heart, you are gone.
