Notes & Reviews:

The beloved American soprano Judith Bettina is heard on this disc in a highly varied recital of recent American song. Accompanied by her husband, the distinguished pianist James Goldsworthy, the pair present numerous first recordings of songs composed for and dedicated to them. Indeed this disc is a tribute to Ms. Bettina's long relationships with a stylistically broad range of American composers. New York Magazine called Judith Bettina "a sensationally accomplished soprano," and this disc offers ample evidence of her great gift.
