Notes & Reviews:

A masterful and innovative force in classical music, Dennis Russell Davies is considered among today's most inventive conductors at the forefront of the orchestral, chamber, and operatic worlds. A modern, articulate, and versatile artist revered for his command of both traditional and contemporary music, Davies is also recognized as an accomplished pianist and an acclaimed collaborator.

"The Dickenson songs are among Copeland’s finest achievements, not a page, not a phrase, sounding mechanical or merely functional to my ears, but as I am really fussy about singers I didn’t know how Helene Schneiderman, whom I had never heard before, would sound in them. As it turns out, she is simply wonderful. Her light, airy, sweet high mezzo voice, sounding very sopranoish to my ears, interprets the words with wry humor and fine clarity of diction.”-Fanfare
