Notes & Reviews:

With this release, the Marlboro Recording Society begins a series dedicated to releasing memorable performances from the Marlboro Music Festival which have never previously been issued commercially. Selected from the recorded archives from past decades to the present day, this new release features Marlboro Festival musicians' recordings of Respighi's II Tramonto, Cuckson's Der gayst funem shturem, and Shostakovich's Songs on Hebrew Folk Themes, Op. 79.

"Ensembles mix veteran, mid-career, and emerging musicians; repertoire is both mainstream and unfairly marginalized. The latter is particularly evident in the song-cycle disc featuring mezzo Jennifer Johnson in Respighi's Il Tramonto for voice and string quartet plus 'The Spirit of the Storm,' a new, mid-weight work by Robert Cuckson for voice and chamber group. The real prize is Shostakovich's quirky, inventive 'Songs on Hebrew Folk Themes' from 1967 with a trio consisting of Benita Valente, Glenda Maurice, and Jon Humphrey, all singing from their souls." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
