American Mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne sings Stephen Fosters’ “I Dream of Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair.” “Marilyn Horne’s Great American Songbook”–performance from December 28, 1983, New York City. Leonard Slatkin conducts.
A beautiful song, sung beautifully.
I attended this performance, not realizing it was being telecast. Horne sang this signature piece as one of several encores. The audience did not want to let her go: even after the house lights came on, the wild applause continued and she had to sing yet another encore. Thanks for posting!
