Gordon?s passion for poetry dates back to his childhood and has provided inspiration for a great deal of his works since. He describes his motivation to compose music set to poems, ?I set poems to music because by doing so, they enter me like fresh water and they seem to clear away the cobwebs. It is like putting the right info into my hard drive as an antidote to all the spam. Poetry is often my savior.? His 2012 album, Silver Rain, is a compilation of songs he wrote set to the poetry of Langston Hughes, performed by soprano Nicole Cabell. A recent review in Gramophone said of the album, ?In short, his songs are gems of concision and emotional directness.? TICKETS: $15-40, children under 12 free for all programs.
