11 Excerpt from Leiyla and the Poet (1961) by Halim El-Dabh
Many composers remember having heard this work—essentially and opera—on an early recording of electronic music from Columbia Records. It is remarkable because of its organic textures and raw energy and inspired many composers who decided to work in electronic music. It is one of the most familiar and popular works produced during the early years of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center.
