Knoxville: Summer of 1915

Eleanor Steber: Soprano
Unlisted pianist

Text: James Agee
Music: Samuel Barber

Part 1.

Part 2.

Unfortunately there isn’t a good place to make a break in this piece but this performance by Eleanor Steber is magnificent. It’s much more intimate than the recording she made with orchestra.

This one is for Echidne who I hope is feeling better soon.
