RICKY IAN GORDON on RICKY IAN GORDON

- a portrait of the artist in his own words


There can be no doubt that New York-based composer RICKY IAN GORDON is well on his way to becoming one of American music's national treasures. A prolific writer of song, he is unique among today's generation of American composers in that he can segue his way from Broadway-style musical (My Life with Albertine) to opera (The Grapes of Wrath) to song (Bright-Eyed Joy, Orpheus and Euridice) and succeed in all of them - indeed, as if it were the most natural thing for a composer to do.

But if you listen to this interview in which he talks with enthusiastic energy and "bright-eyed joy" about the genesis of his passion for music and poetry, you will likely be drawn, as we were, to the conclusion that this unique ability is encoded in his DNA, and regard his assessment of himself as one who can "lay claim to a certain degree of artistry" is rather an understatement.
