rip peter lieberson



We all knew this was coming, but probably not this soon. I know Peter Lieberson best through his Neruda Songs, a piece I read about when Lorraine Hunt Lieberson died.


I saw Mr. Lieberson from afar when I heard Kelley O'Connor and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra perform the Neruda Songs with Bernard Haitink. When I saw him approach the stage, all I could think was, "You wrote one of the most beautiful pieces I've heard in a long time."
