Four Teasdale Songs

for soprano & piano

Robert Russell Bennett (composer)

Radiana Pazmor, a singer who was becoming well-known as a proponent of new music, took on the four songs. She was, not surprisingly, accompanied at the piano by the composer. $20.50Click Here For More Details Or To Purchase.
