Notes & Reviews:

This album of modern Garth Baxter-composed art songs, features coloratura soprano Katherine Unha Keem, with accompanying musicians Andrew Stuart at the piano, guitarist Kathrin Murray and tenor Peter Scott Drackley. Mr. Baxter is noted for his modern traditionalist style of writing, a style that combines the traditions of form and clear melodic writing with the use of contemporary harmonic approaches and other elements. Well known for her skilled singing technique, clear and effortless high notes, and artistic interpretations, Ms. Keem has a vocal range of four octaves.
