The title Propriety comes from an archaic use of that word, meaning the "peculiarity" or "essential quality" of a person or thing, and in the case of this song cycle that subject is classical music itself. From the poet's appreciation of Renaissance choral writing, to a dream in which she imagines Bach being lured by an American university to come teach young composers (along with five harpsichords!), to a poem depicting violinist Isaac Stern working to save Carnegie Hall from demolition, this cycle offers brilliantly colorful commentary on what classical music can mean, and does so with virtuosity. Duration: 16:00
