Event Type: Music
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
Ezra Pound's poetic voice of the 20th century was important in the development of poetry in the 
modernist movement. Connected to musicians, composers, and artists of the early 20th century, 
Pound also wrote musical compositions of his own. In Pound's music, musical realizations of poetic 
form, rhythm, and pacing permeate throughout. This multimedia solo violin program features the music 
and poetry of Ezra Pound, whose little-known musical compositions are rarely performed. Personae 
delves into the essence of human emotionā?" stated through ancient models of poetry, music, and 
art in a modern context. Collaborations include musical compositions by Egemen Kesikli and JP Merz, 
video by Jacob Landis-Eigsti, and poetry by Jesse Nathan.
