An Aria A Day #92

‘Sure on this Shining Night’
from ‘Four Songs’
by Samuel Barber
Piano Kristen Okerlund

8th August, 2020

To offer some joy in the wake of the cancellation of Opera Queensland’s ‘Tristan und Isolde’, we are delighted to share a special performance by Meagan Miller who was going to play Isolde.

Enthusiastically supported by her young son, Meagan performs Samuel Barber’s ‘Sure on this Shining Night’, celebrating the breath-taking beauty of nature.

Samuel Barber was a prolific song composer, although the majority of these remain unpublished. Of the published songs, ‘Sure on this Shining Night’ is widely considered one of the composer’s most famous and has become one of the most frequently programmed songs both in the United States and Europe.
