Notes & Reviews:

American composer Jake Heggie has penned some of the most beautiful vocal music of our day, and his operas and songs have been championed by some of today s foremost artists including Joyce di Donato, Susan Graham, and Frederica von Stade on the acclaimed AVIE release Passing By. On The moon s a gong, hung in the wild, Grammy®-nominated Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager is joined by the great Dutch lieder pianist Maurice Lammerts van Bueren, a devotee of Heggie's music who has given numerous premieres of the composer s work. This sublime collection from the song cycles Statuesque, Songs to the Moon, The Breaking Waves, and Folk Songs is by turns rhapsodic, humorous, and nostalgic.
