Acerca de


Rorem, quite elderly now, has already gone down in history as top of the line American Art Song Composer. This diary is witty, full of wisdom, as well as sharp criticisms of everything from social to the artistic.

From Publishers Weekly:

The latest installment of the diary kept by the preeminent song composer since 1945when he began, Rorem says, "as a release from shyness, to investigate on paper what I could not say aloud"is the most remarkable yet. This is partly because it comprises much of our time and place, and the melancholy tolling of the deaths of artists that echoes through its pages is for ones we have known, too. And Rorem has mellowedno longer the roaring, drunken Ned of the early Paris Diaries, he is now an often sad, more deeply meditative writer on the vagaries of art and the passions. Suffering constantly with his health, he goes through the anguish of the near-breakdown and infidelities of his lover J.H., enjoys endless lunches, teas and dinners in which the dessert is always the thing, is shrewd, waspish and sometimes kind about a host of contemporaries, and never for a moment ceases to work at his music, think about it and travel wherever he must to see and hear it played."I'm a composer who writes, not a writer who composes," he says, and his dedication is heroic; but one can only be glad that he took enough time from his music to write so much. Future generations will not read the diaries for significant revelations about our epoch but for the pleasure of meeting a singularly engaging, playful and thoughtful personality. Index (much needed) and photos not seen by PW.
