Spectrum Symphony presents
The Rape of the Lock
Music by Deborah Mason
Poetry by Alexander Pope, 1714
with poetic liberties by Deborah Mason
Conductor: David Grunberg, of Spectrum Symphony
Director: Catherine Turocy of NYBaroque Dance Co.
Alexander Pope’s exquisite poetry set to music in a modern madrigal style, with capricious rhythms and harmonies. Featured in NYCOpera’s Vox2002, The New York Times said: “The Rape of the Lock,” … offered her adaptation of Pope’s text clothed in wonderfully lush, intricate and contrapuntally energetic music. For me, she was the most pleasant surprise of the series.”
