Notes and Editorial Reviews

Heppner relaxes in delightful fashion.

"The pen poised to write a large N for ‘No’ changes direction and forms a Y. That of itself is a tribute to Heppner: I didn’t think the non-Italianate voice and what had seemed a too-well-moderated musical and emotional temperament could achieve a satisfying authenticity in this. But he does. Heppner maintains a true singing-line, nourishes his tone, feels the music and the words, doesn’t stint, doesn’t overdo and succeeds wonderfully well in adapting his voice and its timbre to a type of music not readily associated with it. Doubters should go straight to Io ti sento (track 13) or Chitarrata abruzzese (track 10).

Sceptics in the matter of Tosti might try
Read more ‘Lasciami! Lascia ch’io respiro’, the first of the four Canzoni d’Amaranta to words by D’Annunzio. Roger Pines’s well-informed notes tell that it was the best-known of these, ‘L’alba separa dalla luce l’ombra’, that first attracted Heppner to Tosti. I hope he realises that there are plenty more of his songs to make up a worthy second volume."

-- John Steane, Gramophone [10/2004]
