Performance Today

with host Fred Child

Poetry and Glass

The Miro String Quartet and poet Matthea Harvey appeared together at this year's White Pine Festival in Stillwater, Minnesota as part of the Poetry Radio Project. The music was Philip Glass' String Quartet No. 5. Harvey's poem, interwoven with the music, brought out images of water and glass, and the remoteness of the natural world. On today's show, we'll hear this memorable performance of words and music.
