Music may be the universal language that needs no wordsâ€š "the language where all language ends" as Rilke put it. That has not stopped poets from ancient times to the present from trying to represent it in verse. A lovely compendium of poems about music and the musician.
The poems are divided into sections on pop and rock, jazz and blues, specific composers and works, various musical instruments, the human voice, the connection between music and love, and music at the close of life. The result is a symphony of poetic voices of all tenors and tones, the perfect gift for all musicians and music lovers.
