American Encores
20th Century American Art Song
with John Paval

American tenor John Paval brings to life the magnificent tapestry of early modern American mores through the poetry and art song of the early 20th Century.  Songs by familiar names like the adventurous Charles Ives and the soulful Samuel Barber, and less familiar songs like the bombastic showstoppers of Ernest Charles, the sweet, delirious stylings of H.T. Burleigh, and the heartrending warbling of Elinor Remick Warren. Through these songs we relive their uniquely American experience of life and death, love and loss, and their sometimes mystical awareness of the wonder of the here and now—what might be called the modern attitude.  These are works of a rare beauty and delightful inventiveness composed at a time when many people wondered if there really was any such thing as American high culture.  Well, there so clearly was.  And in this concert you will experience some of its vibrancy and passion in the birth of the era we ended up calling “the American century.
