Chicago Tribune names Let Evening Come: American Songs Old & New one of 2020’s best classical recordings

Let Evening Come: American Songs Old & New (Albany Records) has been named as one of the best classical recordings of 2020 by The Chicago Tribune. Emily Martin and Richard Masters perform two of Hester Prynne’s arias from The Scarlet Letter — Beyond All Price (Hester’s Lullaby) and This Canopy of Trees

In the Sept/Oct 2020 issue of Fanfare Magazine, Colin Clarke writes:

“Emily Martin lives each word, her soprano strong and pure. Richard Masters is a fine accompanist, and obviously an equally fine soloist as his performances of Frank La Forge’s Two Pieces proves…Lori Laitman has proved her talent for word setting a multitude of times…It is wonderful to see this music excerpted so soon after its premiere. Laitman’s lyrical mode of utterance, her sense of color and her sensitivity to the words, are present in all their glory.”
