Ego Scriptor Cantilenae: The Music of Ezra Pound (OM 1005-2)
Between 1920 and 1933, the American writer Ezra Pound, known for his revelatory work concerning the music of language, turned as well to the language of music. Composing two complete operas and several pieces for solo violin, all in a very personal language which drew from sources as diverse as troubadour music and Igor Stravinsky, Pound set texts by Guido Cavalcanti and François Villon which he felt resisted translation, in order to share his appreciation of these poets with his contemporaries.
