 Wonderful music beautifully recorded by Nonesuch October 17, 2012 By Philip L. (Greensboro, NC) See All My Reviews "It's in all a great listen, performed (and recorded) on the highest artistic and technical level. Simple Daylight is a wonderful cycle that is given a thrilling presentation by Dawn Upshaw with Gilbert Kalish. My appreciation of William Carlos Williams has been reinforced by hearing Words from Paterson, and the first movement alone of the Piano Quintet is a tour de force. I must also mention that the recording of the Quintet in particular is spectacular, thanks to the incomparable production team of Joanna Nickrenz and Marc Aubort. Excellent program notes and full texts are included." Report Abuse
