Songs from the Opera Jesse Owens
"...approachable, honest, well-crafted and eloquent." Opera News
This set of songs, arranged for soprano, baritone, and piano, serves as a compliment to the full orchestration heard in Incidental Music to the Opera Jesse Owens. In this selection of scenes, the singers take on a variety of roles, from the different ages of Jesse Owens, to his future wife, Ruth, his coach, Charlie Riley, and even the German long-jumper, Luz Long.
