Happy Birthday, Virginia Woolf! Talar Khosdegian and I will be presenting the Pulitzer Prize winning song cycle by Dominick Argento of clipping from her diary, but also helping the audience follow the complex story within the music and guiding them through the special motifs Argento used to trace Woolf's journey to her final decision to commit suicide.
