Agnes De Mille
|Notes:||Agnes de Mille summarizes her notes from three talks with Anna Sokolow (who refused to be recorded); this is part of her research for her biography of Martha Graham entitled Martha: the life and work of Martha Graham (1991). The date of the notes is May 31, 1974; the time and place of the recording is not known except that one can surmise the recording must have been made between 1974 and 1991, the year of Martha's publication.
Sound quality is good overall. From approximately 18:15 into disc 1 through the end of disc 1 (approximately three minutes) the recording is marred at times by "tape hiss.". Both disc 1 and disc 2 are also marred by occasional short gaps. However, De Mille's voice is always easily intelligible.
