Notes & Reviews:
It won't take long for the listener to realize that all 27 songs on this recording feature distinguished American poets. Within this recording, you will hear the poetry of Dorothy Parker, Emily Dickinson, Didi Balle, Tess Gallagher, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Elizabeth Bishop. Their words, masterfully set by composers John Musto, Larry Alan Smith and Juliana Hall, will console, inspire and even amuse. An added bonus is that the composers all accompany soprano Cherie Caluda on their works. Ms. Caluda, a faculty artist at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford, has established herself as a champion interpreter of contemporary works with her beautiful voice and stunning technique. A graduate of Eastman and Loyola College and the Academy of Vocal Arts, she is a captivating artist who brings the words of the poets to life on this recording.
