Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Laitman's 'Echo' in particular is simply a beautiful song. The Larsen cycle is a small montage of childhood memories, gentle and nostalgic. The Judith Cloud songs are the most lyrical of the program, and it is here that the shortcomings of the performers are most apparent. Nosikova plays with warmth and ease.

This compact disc shares art songs of four living American women composers never previously recorded by mezzosoprano. With these particular songs, Juliana Hall, Lori Laitman, Judith Cloud, and Libby Larsen have chosen poetic settings that reflect women's personalities, tastes, and life experiences from the 1920s to the present time. Sung by mezzo-soprano Katherine Eberle, the experience of hearing this music created by women composers offers understanding, meaning, enjoyment and enrichment for the listener. Eberle, a member of the faculty at the University of Iowa has presented more than 100 solo recitals in her 25-year career. Performing around the United States, Canada, the U.K. and Russia, Eberle specializes in oratorio, chamber music, art song and opera. Her colleague, pianist Ksenia Nosikova, also on the faculty at the University of Iowa is a graduate of Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the University of Colorado. A Steinway Artist, Nosikova has performed and taught in China, Italy and Hong Kong as well as on guest artist series at more than 80 American universities.
