Notes and Editorial Reviews

Introducing American soprano Nadine Sierra in her debut album, Theres A Place for Us. The album is not only a showcase of her stunning, MET-seasoned vocalism but also a reflection of Americas history as a refuge for all. In this spirit, the album features music by Leonard Bernstein and emigres Igor Stravinsky and Osvaldo Golijov, as well as songs from Heitor Villa-Lobos in homage to Sierras Portuguese roots. Offering her sumptuous voice in a range of genres from Brazilian art music to American opera and art song, Sierra reminds us that all music and all people have a place in America.
