Praised for her “warm creamy voice” and “singing with a poignancy and molten resonance”, mezzo-soprano Patricia Green has gained international renown for her remarkable versatility, three-octave range, and exceptional musicianship. As a performer of new music, Patricia Green has created more than 30 world premieres working internationally with composers Boulez, Schafer, Ligeti, Dusapin, Laitman, Eggert among many others.
The works collected on this CD represent a small sample of the immense span of riches for solo voice. Written within the last thirty years by living composers from Wales, Scotland, England, Germany and Canada, each maintains a connection to the ancient art of storytelling and poetry; with texts from Shakespeare, Norwegian history, Ovid, Native Indian legend, aphorisms (5th-6th Century) and surrealist French poetry.
Blakemore Trio is celebrating ten years of making music
together with the release of this debut recording. Founding members Amy
Dorfman, Carolyn Huebl, and Felix Wang, each acclaimed performers in their own
right, formed the group when their artistic paths crossed at the Blair School
of Music at Vanderbilt University in 2002.
While this disc represents the master works of the genre,
the trio’s repertoire spans the spectrum of the literature, from Beethoven,
Brahms, and Ravel to Rochberg, Schnittke and Tower.
Blue Griffin is happy to present new CD from cellist Hannah Holman and pianist Réne Lecuona. The acclaimed duo performs the complete set of 6 sonatas for cello and piano by Bernhard Romberg. The sonatas are highly accessible for the listener, grant the performer an artistic base for further inspiration, and provide the music lover with a strong portrait of a forgotten master.
