This is the original cast recording of the stage performance adapted by Brenda Currin and David Kaplan and featuring A Fantasia on Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, along with a stunning spoken performance by Miss Currin, who reads from several Eudora Welty short stories. The result is a striking mixture of words and music that evokes Welty's world of passion, humor, and the culture of the Deep South.Currin began performing June Recital in the 1980's and it has continued to delight audiences ever since, with a production onstage almost continuously for the past 20 years. Previous reviews of the stage show describe it as "A symphony of names and phrases and scenes from Welty's works. Spoken rhythmically over Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, the words tip off her tongue and blend like harmonic chords," and "Sister has a human glow Wild and unexpected flashes of emotion are what Welty is about and Currin's blithe and delicate attack gives them a surprising intensity." We are sure you'll enjoy this original cast recording just as much, and discover the delight that Currin brings to her performance.
