Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Corigliano writes, "L'Invitation au voyage, composed in
1971, is a setting of Richard Wilbur's translation of Baudelaire's poem.
Wilbur's poignant setting pictures a world of obsessive imagination - a drugged
vision of heaven full of sensual imagery. The music echoes the quality of the
repeated refrain in Wilbur's lush translation: There, there is nothing else but grace and measure, richness,
quietness, and pleasure."
