Following the tragically early death of this remarkable singer, Wigmore Hall Live are delighted to release a recording of one of Lorraine Hunt Lieberson’s most revered concerts at the Hall. Recorded in 1998 this recital features songs by her two signature composers – Mahler  and Handel, and also songs by her husband, Peter Lieberson, who took much of his inspiration from her exquisite voice.

This CD is not only a heartfelt tribute to a singer who touched everyone who heard her, but is also a must for anyone who looks to be moved by the music they hear.

“Lorraine Hunt Lieberson was one of the most important and inspiring voices of our time, as this breathtaking recording testifies. We are deeply pleased to bring Wigmore Hall’s musical program to a much wider audience through Wigmore Hall Live”. John Gilhooly, Director of Wigmore Hall

"indispensable for lovers of great singing and great artistry"
 

The Sunday Telegraph

"This Wigmore disc shows what magic she wrought with Mahler and Handel"
 

The Independent


"This recital presents a remarkable singer still at the height of her powers some eight years before her untimely death ... All in all, this is a cherishable memento of a very special artist"

International Record Review

"It is difficult to get through this recital without a lump in your throat ... Her performance of Mahler’s Ruckert Lieder, one of the finest on disc, avoids the usual morbidity and contains flashes of divine revelation ... Essential listening"
 

The Guardian

"The mezzo-soprano’s powers of communication transcended matters of vocal technique, although she certainly had the technical assurance to place her voice at music’s service ... Exceptional stuff"

Classic FM Magazine

"Here, she is heard in Mahler’s Five Ruckert Lieder, the voice unfailingly beautiful, the words evocative, and in the valedictory Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen (I am lost to the world), serenely resigned and sadly prophetic. A glowing memento of a glorious artist"

The Sunday Times


"This mezzo-soprano had a profound musical bond with Mahler, for example, and this is her only extant recording of the Ruckert Lieder. It’s a marvel ... Roger Vignoles deserves praise, too, for his playing matches Hunt Lieberson in its emotional concentration and directness ... "Unbewegte laue Luft" ends the recital on an ecstatic note that surely sent the audience out on a cloud. Indispensable"

Gramophone

"The unique warmth of tone is sounded in the first notes even of the lighter Mahler songs, but there’s also a spiritual grace in her approach ... peerless"
