Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Lori Laitman, one of America's most prolific and widely performed composers of art song comments: "The songs on this CD are for solo voice and piano, and all have been composed since 2000, making them 21st century art song. The poems were written between 1612 and 2008... My goal is to create dramatic music to express and magnify the meaning of the poem... Each song becomes my musical interpretation of the poem."

"In the American-romantic art song tradition of Barber, Rorem, and Heggie, Lori Laitman has written some 200 songs distinguished by unabashed lyricism, sensitivity to the texts, and ravishing piano writing to go with her appealing vocal lines. It's hard to dislike this popular, listener-friendly music, though too much of it at one time is like a sugar high...The all star roster includes Jennifer Check, Sari Gruber, Karyn Friedman, Randal Scarlata, and veteran accompanist Warren Jones; Laitman proves a deft accompanist as well."-ARG
