Harry Partch - Seventeen Lyrics of Li Po

The Seventeen lyrics of Li Po were composed between 1931 and 1933 and are among Partch’s earliest extant compositions. They were composed for Intoning Voice and Partch’s Adapted Viola, a hybrid instrument consisting of a cello neck grafted onto the body of a viola, its open strings sounding one octave below the violin. He used texts from the eighth century Chinese poet Li Po, selected from  Shigeyoshi Obata’s 1928 English translation.
