Notes & Reviews:

"This disc showcases American composer John Harbison's creativity in chamber music but it is a performance by Lorraine Hunt Lieberson that most captivates with bittersweet beauty... North and South sets poems by Elizabeth Bishop, exquisite songs of life outside the stereotyped American dream. Harbison catches the mood perfectly and Hunt Lieberson injects a sultry timbre into her lustrous realisations." -Gramophone
