No Notes Found.

“Getty is a skilled and imaginative composer who does, in fact, use dissonance to create tension and, as he says, “to suggest a degree of disorientation.” His music is melodic, often tuneful, but always well crafted….Lisa Delan has a lovely, bright soprano voice that she can color appropriately…Fritz Steinegger plays the colorful piano parts very well, and partners the soprano perfectly….. I have returned to this disc with pleasure more than a few times already.”

Henry Fogel - Fanfare
 


“Getty, in this well-traveled 1981 song cycle, wisely matches the poetry’s no-frills tone….It’s touching how he takes her words to heart. It’s also impressive how Delan steps into her character, even dressing for a performance in period clothing.”

M. K. G -  Buffalo News
 


“The White Election is a cycle of 32 songs based on Poems by Emily Diuckinson. Gordon Getty (b. 19333) has written mostly for the voice, and The White election stands as a clear masterpiece.. The physical sound has a spatial fullness, yet the miking on Ms Delan’s voice is precise and intimate. Delan projects well and her voice isn’t so powerful as to overwhelm the lyrics… Each work here is a small jewel and should please just about anyone, whether you’re familiar with Emily Dickinson’s poetry or not”

Cook - American Record Guide


“With only a few exceptions, the songs are simple — even simplistic, as if the composer were channeling music that Dickinson herself, an amateur pianist and singer, could have come up with for her own poems. As Getty puts it in the notes, "I have set them, in large part, just as Emily might have if her music had found a balance between tradition and iconoclasm something like that in her poems…..The soprano Lisa Delan, a Getty favorite, performs the cycle with attractive facility and understanding.”
