Identity and Conformity in Samuel Barber's "Knoxville: Summer of 1915"

Samuel Barber's "Knoxville: Summer of 1915" was the first American work which featured a soprano and orchestra. This major work is defined by its juxtaposition of identity, as heard in the musical conventions, versus conformity, as described by the prose, musical conventions, and performance history.
