Description

John Corigliano (b. 1938) is an American composer. The Poem In October was commissioned by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and first performed in 1970. Taking its text from a 1944 work by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, it was later arranged for chamber orchestra by the composer as part of his Dylan Thomas Trilogy.

It is cast in Rondo form, with instrumental interludes interweaved with the vocal verses. While the metre and rhythms are irregular, the melody line is highly lyrical, reflecting the rich imagery of the text. It has been arranged for solo Tenor with Piano accompaniment.
