Notes & Reviews:

Menotti's style is instantly appealing, yet never merely attractive. Indeed, his music is fascinating enough to hear again and agian, and his relative neglect up until now is astonishing. This keenly awaited release has attracted huge interest from all areas of the music world, not least as this is the premiere recording of 'Martin's Lie', and the only available recording of the Five Songs for Tenor and Piano.
