Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Katherine Broderick, along with pianist Malcolm Martineau, presents a recital of ripely romantic and lyrical songs and cabaret humor from the turn of the 20th century. The rich repertoire begins with early R. Strauss and snakes through the New Viennese School with Berg and Schoenberg, allowing Broderick to showcase her great musical versatility.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Katherine Broderick is quite an expressive singer, and this is an enjoyable program. Her articulation is as good as her phrasing. Berg's 'Nacht' is a stunning study of dynamic and tonal subtleties. Martineau is a classy partner as always. Sonics are excellent as well, and the musicians take full advantage of the acoustically wondrous Champs Hill Music Room. Still, Broderick is an exceptional communicator.
