Notes and Editorial Reviews

The gifted, glamorous and versatile mezzo-soprano, Isabel Leonard has graced most of the world’s major opera stages, including the Met, to great acclaim. In her first album for Delos, she pays heartfelt tribute to her Argentinian ancestry with a varied program of Spanish songs by de Falla, Granados, Mompou and Montsalvatge, and demonstrates her innate feel for the Spanish musical idiom in interpretations that are sultry, melancholic and passionate. One of America’s most appreciated piano collaborators, Brian Zeger reinforces the program’s overall Hispanic aura and flavors with subtle support from the keyboard.

“Leonard’s darkly lustrous mezzo-soprano is ideal for the plum role of Rosina. The American singer commands the wide
Read more range, the coloratura agility and the striking physical beauty, charm and stage presence to make an audience take the heroine to its heart.” -- John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune
