PAUL AUSTER POETRY & MUSIC
Paul Auster, hailed as one of Americas most spectacularly inventive writers, will open the new season of Works & Process on September 12 and 13 by reading from his Collected Poems at the Guggenheim Museum. In addition, Works & Process has commissioned vocal music settings of his poetry from five leading composers. They will have their world premiere performances those evenings.
The composers are Milton Babbitt, Lee Hyla, Louis Karchin, Roger Reynolds, and Charles Wuorinen; and each of the works is a duet for one voice and one instrument, performed by The Group for Contemporary Music.
