Odyssey: The Epic of Enoch Arden—Poem for Speaker and Piano

Alfred, Lord Tennyson during his tenure as Britain's poet laureate, published a narrative poem about the life and love of a merchant sailor named Enoch Arden. Three decades later, in 1897, Richard Strauss set the poem as a recitation for speaker and piano, a popular form at the time. In this session, Judith Krummeck and John Nauman will introduce and perform this rarity, which has previously attracted such notable pairings as Jon Vickers with Marc-André Hamelin; Michael York with John Bell Young; Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau with Burkhard Kehring; and Patrick Stewart with Emanuel Ax.
