Notes & Reviews:

These stunning recordings, made in just 19 days in 2008 at New York City's famed American Academy of Arts and Letters, constitute a splendid contemporary survey of this indispensable cycle. The packaging is gorgeous, the exceptional liner notes by Eric Bromberger are wonderfully insightful, and the production by multiple Grammy Award winner Judith Sherman is flawless. The respective voices are exquisitely exposed & supported, and always balanced to perfection. Pathos, humor, and agony are expressed without reserve and these uniquely vital, loving, and essential interpretations constitute a landmark accomplishment for this splendid ensemble.
