Notes & Reviews:

Barbara Hendricks' voice - particularly suited to Mozart, Debussy, Faure, and the lighter roles of Puccini and Richard Strauss - has a warm, crystalline quality that has kept her in demand on stage and in recording studios. Her performances have embraced everything from contemporary music to popular standards, including songs by Duke Ellington and several world premieres. Aside from music, she is deeply committed to humanitarian work, with a particular concern for refugees and those in war or poverty zones. In 1993, She sang a concert in Sarajevo while the city was being shelled, for which she wore a bulletproof vest and helmet. Hendricks has appeared on nearly 80 recordings spread across a variety of major labels. Her first of many recordings for EMI was in 1978 as the small role of the Celestial Voice in Don Carlo. For nearly twenty years her solo recordings have been made exclusively for EMI Classics.
