Work Overview

Portrait of America draws together, through music, the poems of four American writers. Two of the poems have become popular and better known than their writers, but for the other two, the writers are better known than their poems. The songs, a cycle ending with a reprise of the first song, celebrate American writing of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries while exploring the colours and moods of the tenor voice and piano.
