"Joyce Kouffman's work with words and music is startlingly intimate and alive." ~ Robert Hass (former United States poet laureate), in response to Kouffman's music composition "...the melancholy beauty of giving it all up..." and other new works inspired by poets Linda Pastan and Jane Hirshfield, premiered before a sell-out audience on October 5, 2007 at "A River of Words and Music," part of Kouffman's project "Music at the Center."

"I was surprised and gratified at how well Joyce Kouffman's music mirrored both the mood of my poems and their rhythms." ~ Linda Pastan

"Joyce Kouffman brings her unique talents as composer into conversation with poetry in a way that expands both music and words, creating a third dimension in which each part of the whole exists both in its own fullness and changed." ~ Jane Hirshfield
