Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Color of the Word presents songs by some of the greatest masters of the art of setting poetry to music. With the exception of Purcell's songs, the repertoire heard here grows out of the 19th century German Romantic Lied tradition. Soprano Georgine Resick and pianist Warren Jones are known for their fascinating thematic programming, and this recital follows in that tradition, showing unusual contrasts and similarities between diverse repertoire. Georgine Resick was principal lyric soprano at the Cologne Opera, later moving to the same position at the Deutsche Oper am Rhine in Düsseldorf. She has also performed with the Vienna State Opera, the Chicago Lyric Opera, the Paris Opera and numerous others. Warren Jones has worked with Dame Kiri Read more Te Kanawa, Bo Skovhus, Samuel Ramey, Marilyn Horne, Kathleen Battle and many other leading singers and instrumentalists. Read less
