The Mask--a cycle of five poems drawn from the Harlem Renaissance and other periods of African-American literature--explores the theme of identity in settings for chorus and piano that combine popular and classical elements in Bolcom's signature style. Romancero Gitano(Gypsy Ballads) inhabits the distinctly dark, mystical, and wild world of Lorca's imagination as filtered through Castelnuovo-Tedesco's own decidedly neo-Romantic sensibility.

Reviews
"William Bolcom's 'Mask,' which Miss Clurman led in its New York premiere, uses contemporary texts and ranges more widely. In it, one hears harmonic clashes that are acidic enough to give the music texture and tension, yet mild and fleeting enough that even the most conservative ear would not be troubled by them. Woven into this texture are hints of pop influence, blues and even a touch of calypso. Mr. Bolcom's gift is an ability to integrate these influences." - The New York Times
