Notes & Reviews:

"The main reason for purchasing this is Phaedra, a powerful 'monodrama' based on portions of Robert Lowell's poetic treatment of that tortured Greek maiden. This is an effective and impressive work, entirely operatic in conception, and will appeal to listeners seeking a quick fix of grand vocal hysteria. Mezzo Mary Nessinger has the measure of this relentlessly challenging work, and she is well supported by Gil Rose and this excellent orchestra." - Gimbel, ARG
