Mirroring changes in other Stanford libraries, the Music Library has begun keeping books and accompanying discs together on the shelf. Books will have special, archivally-sound pockets inserted for CDs, DVDs, and CD-ROMs. We hope this change will make accessing accompanying discs easier for you. At present, older books with accompanying discs will remain separated (books in the stacks, discs at Circulation).
The latest free download from Classical Music Library is Samuel Barber’s Nuvoletta, op. 25, for soprano and piano, performed here by Ann Murray and Graham Johnson. It was composed in 1947 as Barber was preparing for the premiere of Knoxville, Summer of 1915, with the soprano Eleanor Steber. Steber was then one of the first sopranos to present this theatrically-demanding work in recital.
