Notes and Editorial Reviews



Memories of a great artist in a fascinating Spanish programme

An absolutely smashing live concert of both Spanish and Spain-inspired songs. Lorraine Hunt Lieberson is a master of mood, of nuance, absolutely inhabiting the character of each song. Neither does she totally overshadow her less famous colleague, the lovely lyric tenor Joseph Kaiser. Sondheim’s "Barcelona" makes for an amusing finale, much enjoyed by the audience.

-- Gramophone [3/2008]
