OLIVIA SUE GREENE IN RECITAL
Monday, November 18, 2019 at 7:00 pm
Olivia Sue Greene presented her debut recital at St. Bartholomewís Church. An exploration of art song written in the first half of the 20th century, her program juxtaposed the feverishly romantic early songs of Alban Berg with a harmonically unhinged and expressionistic outlier in the repertoire of Richard Strauss.
The concert concluded with Samuel Barberís beloved gem of lyrical Americana, Knoxville: Summer of 1915. Barberís setting of excerpts from James Agee's Pulitzer Prize-winning prose poem paints a dreamlike depiction of an evening in the American South. Ms. Greene, a Southern native herself, was thrilled to share a new program in a familiar space, where she can be heard performing every Sunday as a member of St. Bartholomew's Choir.
