"Excerpts from my opera Haroun and the sea of stories, rearranged for four singers and with a newly composed piano part. This latter is neither mere accompaniment nor a simple reduction of the original orchestral score, but rather a newly conceived virtuoso solo part. The selections are arranged so as to make Songbook a complete independent piece"--Booklet.
Lyrics by James Fenton, based on the novel of Salman Rushdie.
