  • About This Album

    1989 Grammy Award Winner

    This Nonesuch debut, featuring Samuel Barber's title piece, garnered Upshaw a Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Soloist Performance. "If you want just one recording of Knoxville," says Gramophone, "it should be Upshaw's. In no other version is the intimacy of Barber's music so poignantly conveyed." The Washington Post called Knoxville “dreamily evocative” and declared Upshaw “one of the most impressive young singers on the American scene.”
