VIDEO: Lloyd Schwartz's poem set to music at Tanglewood

Although we love to brag about the Pulitzer that our classical editor LLOYD SCHWARTZ won a few years back for his music criticism, we've always had to share Lloyd's prodigious talents with his first love, poetry. Over the summer, another Pulitzer Prize-winner -- the Israeli composer Shulamit Ran -- chose to have her students at the Tanglewood Music Center set some of Lloyd's verse set to music. (You may have heard: we've been told former Phoenix lackey Geoff Edgers has been very excited about it.) Lloyd's been blogging about the experience over at the Best American Poetry, and thankfully someone threw up a selection of the performance on YouTube. Check it out: first vid is Lloyd's intro, the second is the piece.
