Notes and Editorial Reviews

In this release, Cathy Berberian explores the most varied vocal territories: from traditional songs to Berio and to..the Beatles. Cathy Berberian turned toward this repertoire, critically but with love. She explored the music according to the instructions of Proust, and she explored it with the same devotion that she had applied to the music of Berio or Bussontti.
