    Songs in the Rear View Mirror by composer Kenneth Frazelle is "...one of the finest American song cycles in recent or distant memory…" (San Francisco Classical Voice.) Part road trip and part childhood reminiscence, listeners are transported on an evocative and haunting musical portrait of Southern life and art past abandoned barns, tangles of kudzu and evangelizing road signs. The work grew out of a fascination with the artistic progeny of humble Hale County, Alabama through the celebrated photographs, sculpture and paintings of Alabama native William Christenberry. When Frazelle undertook his own journey in the artists’ footsteps he not only found new sources of inspiration but unexpectedly unearthed many poignant, nostalgic and often turbulent memories from his own Southern childhood. Songs in the Rear View Mirror is one of Kenneth Frazelle’s most ambitious works, comprised of ten songs united by refreshing harmonies, coloristic piano writing, and the undulating rhythm of the highway.
