Notes & Reviews:

Composer Bruce Adolphe writes: "The first time I heard Laurie Rubin sing, I was so impressed by the beauty of her voice and her compelling artistry that I invited her to join me in a family concert about the moon for The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. After that concert, I knew that I wanted to have an ongoing musical partnership with Laurie, so I asked her if she would write a poem for me to set to music, for her to sing. I asked Laurie if she would consider writing it about her experiences as a blind person. Laurie was immediately enthusiastic and set to work. The resulting poem, Do You Dream in Color?, is both a personal memoire and a celebration of the human spirit: an emotional, probing dramatic text that explores the nature of blindness and of human perception." Laurie Rubin's remarkable debut disc includes songs sung in four languages. She sings in English, Spanish, French, accompanied by the excellent Marija Stroke, and completes her recital in Hebrew, performing with brilliant composer/pianist Noam Sivan.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Rubin's compelling voice, silvery and brilliant in the upper register and warm and strong below the staff, with an unusually wide range, exceptionally clear diction, and welcome emotional directness.
