ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Passages is a melopoeia. Melopoeia is an ancient art whose Greek name—a combination of melos (“melody”) and poiein (“to make,” root of the word poeta, “maker,” and poetria, “poetry”) suggests its nature: a performance involving poetry recited to a musical accompaniment. The poetry is spoken, not sung in the form of song lyrics, so that the two arts flow separately, through and around each other, without either becoming dominant over the other.

In this new program, poets Rhina Espaillat and Alfred Nicol and classical/flamenco guitarist John Tavano explore various kinds of journeys, or passages: the very different sea-voyages of conquistadors and exiles; the swift travel of atomic particles; a seemingly inconsequential walk from the work-place to the bus; and finally, the passage of time and the final border-crossing that lies ahead of us all.
