PORGY AND BESS – Few works merit immediate “classic” status, but the folk opera Porgy and Bess is surely one. In it, Gershwin tore down the barriers between American musical theater and opera, popular and formal musical styles, social classes, and races.
MALHER’S SYMPHONY No2 – Gustav Mahler’s Second Symphony, also known as Resurrection, is an epic choral orchestral work that evokes both strength and contemplation.
CHANSON D’AVRIL: NICOLE CABELL WITH CRAIG TERRY
“At once womanly and ingenuous, Nicole Cabell’s luminescent lyric soprano finds its ideal channel in this exploration of French chansons. In the lush gem “Adieux de l’hôtesse arabe,” she caresses the phrase “Hélas! Adieu!” like a seductive dare. She maintains a darker color for “Ouvre ton coeur” and “Pastorale,” while the ardent outpouring of “Chanson d’avril” reveals a sunnier glow. The restrained romanticism of “L’invitation au voyage” offers Cabell the opportunity to saturate her phrases with a voluptuous, luxuriant calm. In “Enfant, si j’étais roi,” she radiates grandiosity and lends “Oh! quand je dors” a liquid, faraway quality.”
