"This is an interesting and enterprising programme, consistently well performed by all concerned, recorded in fine well-balanced sound, and with a booklet that includes detailed notes and complete texts”

Nigel Simeone

 

International Record Review

“Pentatone Classics has issued a veritable bonanza of recent American song, half of which come from Bay Area composers. …All but Bolcom’s and Heggie’s creations receive their much-deserved recording premieres.

This essentially local effort, which includes notes by Clifford (Kip) Cranna, features performances by soprano Lisa Delan and pianist Kristin Pankonin, both graduates of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, with additional contributions by Bay Area-bred cellist Matt Haimovitz and, in one duet, mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzer. Distinguished by direct, clear sound that resists any temptation to over-reverb what are essentially intimate performances, the Skywalker Studios recording comes in high-resolution, optional multichannel SACD format.”

Jason Victor
 

San Francisco Classical Voice

“This recital by the wonderful American soprano Lisa Delan created pleasant peril for me, and I don’t mind admitting it. Lord, but there’s so much diversity here! These seventeen songs by six composers – William Bolcom, Gordon Getty, Jake Heggie, David Garner, John Corigliano, and Luna Pearl Woolf – range from cabaret and blues to genuine art song and modern folk-inspired. The lyrics cover the whole poetic spectrum: poignant, piquant, witty, profound, wickedly satirical, sad, and sensuous, with even a bit of pathos here and there. It’s as if I’d been admiring the artistry of one of those jugglers who can balance a rubber ball, a basketball, a bowling ball, and a pineapple all at the same time, and was requested by the artist: “Here, won’t you please keep these going for a while so I can take a break?”

Phil Muse

Sequenza 21

“If ever a collection of new, American songs could put a smile on your face, it’s surely this one, sung by the versatile soprano Delan. Her singing is full of thoughtful detail and rings clear (yes, you can actually hear the words), plus her acting is dramatic enough to be direct but is never over-the-top. William Bolcom’s Four Cabaret Songs is Broadway bound as is Gordon Getty’s Poor Peter, accompanied by Delan’s claps and stomps. John Corigliano’s “Dodecaphonia” makes fun of 12-tone music and composers and his “Marvelous Invention” is a rhapsody on a woman’s new iPod. Hence, his work is tonal and very funny.”

Anna Reguero

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

 “I am not sure I have heard a finer American song album since Songs of America made its debut on Nonesuch about 20 years ago….A top notch recital of some wonderful American songs, captured in pristine surround sound.”    *****
