‘ A dramatic power…’


New CD release celebrates mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson  and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Mark Swed, music critic for the Los Angeles Times, heard the performance of this cantata in person and wrote “…nothing can prepare you for this riveting singer…. I don’t normally believe in channeling, but when the first indescribably physical sounds come out of her mouth, I am ready to believe anything. So strong, so vibrant and so utterly communicative, they are as if tones were made flesh. For half an hour, Royce Hall and all in it were in the thrall of an amazing, hypnotic artist at the absolute peak of her powers.”
