For soprano and piano. Lorine Niedecker (1903-1970) lived much of her life beside a flooding river in a small cabin without electricity or running water. She worked small, mostly secretarial jobs. Many who knew her, did not know about her poetry. More of a presence in England (Harrison Birtwistle made a song cycle from her poems in 1998), she is increasingly valued in the United States, with two recent biographies, and complete republication of her spare, strong-minded poems. Seven Poems of Lorine Niedecker was composed in honor of Tanglewood's 75th anniversary. It was designed to include the participation of a long-time friend and colleague, Ursula Oppens. — John Harbison
