Publisher's Summary

Continuing a collaboration started years ago with a performance at Tanglewood of Schubert`s Die Schone Mullerin, Benjamin Luxon and Frederick Moyer now turn to the little-explored genre of music for piano and narrator. Enoch Arden first came to international attention with a recording by Claude Raines and Glenn Gould but has since drifted back to obscurity. This is a work that both Luxon and Moyer have loved for many years. The poem is immediately accessible to any audience and tells a heart-wrenching story of friendship, love, separation, and sacrifice. Strauss masterful score creates a powerful soundtrack to the saga. Music by Richard Strauss, performed on piano by Frederick Moyer.
