Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Lee Hoiby is one of America's finest living opera composers, and many of the current generation who have ventured into this arena could learn a great deal from him -Summer and Smoke is a masterpiece, and a first production of his most recent effort, an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, is eagerly awaited. But A Month in the Country must be regarded chiefly as a diversion. Nevertheless, I would recommend it - and the recording -to those listeners who enjoy both Vanessa and The Seagull. And Albany Records is to be commended for its significant commitment to documenting the repertoire of American opera. Overall, the performance is excellent." - Walter Simmons, Fanfare
