Album Summary

>Abrahamsen, Hans : Let Me Tell You, for soprano & orchestra
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Composed in 2012 and 2013, Let me tell you is a dramatic monologue voiced by a character who requires us to hear her. That character is not quite the Ophelia of Shakespeare's Hamlet; her entire text is made up from words Ophelia speaks in that play, but she uses these words in different ways, to express herself differently. Barbara Hannigan is known worldwide as a soprano of vital expressive force directed by exceptional technique. She brings the same high energy to her varied activities as a conductor as well as to her singing, including recent engagements with Simon Rattle, Kent Nagano, and David Zinman.

New York Times
A superb and versatile soprano.
