BARBER
Knoxville: Summer of 1915

SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony no. 9
Opera News describes Renee Fleming’s voice as “full and pearly” and Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 as “tailor-made” for her “with its lush, soaring melodies tinged with folksong, dramatic climaxes to show off her upper range”. Framing this atmospheric recollection of summer evenings in Tennessee are Wagner’s ecstatic celebration of love and Shostakovich’s enchanting homage to Haydn.

For aged 6 or above
