Pound himself revised his opera Le Testament in 1926 and 1933 to accommodate reduced performing forces. Under pressure from musicians who resisted the mathematical acrobatics required to read and play the 1923 music, he also changed the asymmetrical rhythms to simpler plans based on, respectively, 5/8 and 4/4 meters. This publication is a double volume that contains engraved performance editions for the 1926 and 1933 versions, with libretto, editors' notes, and historical background.
Le Testament: 1926 and 1933 performance editions will be of interest to collectors and followers of twentieth-century opera and poetry, as well as to vocalists, performing groups and ensembles. Rental music parts are available for the 1926 and 1933 editions.
