Pulitzer nominated composer and opera singer Kate Soper talks about the boundary between language, music, words- and the eternal pursuit of authentic self-expression.
This week on The Organist, we visit the shady glen where language and music make out with each other, in a field surrounded by phonemes, intonation, and the throw-away vocables of human expression. What’s important here isn’t what we say, but how we say it.
