Argento pens a generous 8 bar musical quotation of the vocal and piano line of the opening words from the first part, “The Diary” from the song cycle.  He has accomplished the musical quotation on 2 prepared staves with a second pen form the lyrical line.

 

“From the Diary of Virgina Woolf” written in 1974 for the British contralto Dame Janet Baker won the Pulitzer Prize in 1975.  Argento (1927-2019) passed away this February.  The composer wrote 14 operas, numerous song cycles, choral works, symphonic works and instrumental works, however, “From the Diary of Virginia Woolf” remains one of his most popular works.
