The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock: A Rhapsody for Voice and Orchestra (2017) 

Music by Henry Dehlinger
Words by T.S. Eliot

Adapted from the poem by T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) and composed especially for the beautiful lyric voice of soprano Danielle Talamantes, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock embodies a modern musical language that makes use of eclecticism while suggesting the familiar symphonic American vernacular of 20th century composers like Howard Hanson, Samuel Barber, and Leonard Bernstein. It makes its premiere under the baton of Maestro Piotr Gajewski.

Instrumentation
High Voice and Orchestra

World Premiere: April 18, 2020
