Pulitzer Prize-winning, US Poet Laureate Rita Dove (199395) narrates an evening of Beethoven through her “masterful collection” of poems Sonata Mulattica, a lyrical, layered work which “[details] the volatile relationship between the Black violinist George Bridgetower and Beethoven” (Los Angeles Times).

Visionary Sounds is supported by a generous gift from Alden Toevs.
