Notes & Reviews:

"Golijov's music is at once intellectually lively and extremely accessible, emotionally direct and colorfully warm. A singer of extraordinary versatility, Upshaw rewards Golijov with a completely persuasive, soulful performance. The Andalucian Dogs prove to be astonishing, inspired chamber collaborators. The blend of instruments and the tautness of their ensemble is thrilling to hear." - Arlo McKinnon, Opera News
