Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Langston Hughes poetry lends itself so readily to musical setting that the composer Elite Siegmeister once declared him the "most musical poet of the twentieth century". From popular forms to the more demanding jazz and classical repertoire, Hughes found inspiration in the work of musicians. This collection of songs written by 20th Century American composers on the poet's texts celebrates the centenary of his birth.
