composer of songs based on a world-wide source of poetry. His songs based on
American poetry are intuitively beautiful, ie. those based on poems of Walt
Whitman, Paul Goodman, Theodore Roethke and Frank O’Hara. Other works written
such as sonatas and a Violin Concerto (1984) recorded by Leonard Bernstein,
Gidon Kremer and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra on DG 429 231 2. Phyllis
Curtin and Susan Graham - outstanding interpreters of the Songs. New CD of
Rorem’s Songs released this year with Susan Graham-mezzo-soprano and Malcolm

Thomson Songs make interesting and comparable listening experiences.
