Music by Henry Dehlinger
Words by T.S. Eliot

Adapted from the poem by T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) and composed especially for Metropolitan Opera 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, Roy Harris and Samuel Barber. It makes its premiere under the baton of Maestro Piotr Gajewski.

World Premiere: April 18, 2020
The Strathmore, North Bethesda, MD
The National Philharmonic at Strathmore
