Notes & Reviews:
The American-Armenian soprano Cathy Berberian was Luciano Berio's first wife and more importantly longstanding inspirational muse. Though she was influential in many of Berio's more important compositions such as "Circles" and "Sequenza III", his avant-garde "Recital 1" here is often equally fascinating. The "Folk Songs" in various languages and styles compiled by John Jacob Niles also gives Berberian the chance to demonstrate her unique instrument. Her lovely renditions of three songs by Kurt Weill perfectly conclude this extraordinary recital.
