Format: COMPACT DISC
Kimbrough, Steven; Jackson, Margaret; Jackson, Mary K.
Alban Berg left behind a wonderful group of songs. These early songs were unpublished during Berg's lifetime. They deserve a serious listening. This album presents these songs in the excellent performances they so richly deserve. Steven Kimbrough is an internationally known operatic, concert, and musical theater singer (baritone), and recording artist, who has performed on the professional stages of North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. He has been described as “a remarkable singer, with a cultivated, easily flowing baritone of fine quality and a rare command of words and rhythms.” (The New Yorker) Margaret Jackson is a professionally trained opera singer who has traveled all over the world. She is also an expert in musicology and Western music history.
