Notes and Editorial Reviews
Showcasing Metropolitan Opera and GRAMMY® Award-winning mezzo-soprano Cooke, and the Colburn Orchestra led by Gilad. The recording includes Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder, the aria ‘Am I in Your Light?’ from Doctor Atomic by John Adams, Chausson’s sweeping Poème de l'amour et de la mer, all with full orchestra, and two Handel arias, ‘Scherza infida’ and ‘Ombra mai fu’ performed with chamber orchestra. The members of the Colburn Orchestra create a distinct orchestral sound (a great one), and Maestro Gilad elicits sensitive and lyrical interpretations of the repertoire. This recording won the Audio Oasis Award even before it was released at THE SHOW in Newport, 2012.
