Samuel Barber (1910-81) Knoxville, Summer 1915 Dawn Upshaw, soprano David Zinman Orchestra of St. Luke's Text by James Agee (1909-55) Pictures: A selection.

Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Op. 24, is a 1947 work for voice and orchestra by Samuel Barber, with text from a 1938 short prose piece by James Agee. The work was commissioned by soprano Eleanor Steber, who premiered it in 1948 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Serge Koussevitzky. Although the piece is traditionally sung by a soprano, it may also be sung by tenor. The text is in the persona of a male child.

Knoxville: Summer of 1915. One of the best extended song works in American vocal literature is Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, a setting of a prose poem by James Agee from A Death in the Family. This romantic vocal work of 1947 (revised 1950) for a long time was closely associated with Leontyne Price's rich voice, but Dawn Upshaw equals Price's classic performance in her quite different soprano sound in a performance of more nostalgia, if less overt drama. Comparison of the two fine sopranos' ways with this masterpiece is fascinating
