Henry Dehlinger’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, based on the famous poem by T.S. Eliot, was composed specifically for the gifted soprano Danielle Talamantes. The program also includes a newly commissioned work from Alistair Coleman, continuing the National Philharmonic tradition of showcasing the work of younger composers.
