Ashberyana: Celebration Poet John Ashbery







Works of John Zorn, Joan Tower, Josquin des Prez/Charles Wuorinen, Erik Satie, and Charles Wuorinen and readings from the work of John Ashbery

Da Camera joins forces with renowned American composers and musicians to celebrate John Ashbery’s legacy with works that reflect his playfulness, wit and humor. The greatest American poet of his generation, Ashbery visited Houston for a Da Camera concert during Sarah Rothenberg’s first season as artistic director. Joan Tower’s Holding a Daisy was written for Rothenberg, as was Charles Wuorinen’s Ashberyana, recorded by Da Camera for Naxos.
