Notes & Reviews:

Harmonium, a song cycle for soprano and piano on poems by Wallace Stevens was written in 1951. He selected 20 of the 85 poems in Harmonium, reordered them to suit his own needs and set them to music as an hour-long cycle. It is one of the major 20th century achievements in this classic form and this is a world premiere recording.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Vincent Persichetti's Harmonium (1951) is a large cycle of poems by Wallace Stevens, alternately moody, dramatic, and lyrical. Harmony is very free. The cycle closes with a particularly beautiful setting of the ubiquitous 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird. Ms Overholt has a firm grasp on this difficult music, and Mr Pierce does an exemplary. This is a first recording. Texts included. Notes by Eric Salzman.
