Wild Songs

Soprano Polly Butler Cornelius includes Lori’s Four Emily Dickinson Songs on her Wild Songs recording (purchase).

“For people who think back nostalgically to Schubert and his musical circle and marvel at the small, private pleasures they enjoyed, here is evidence that such musical society and magic exist today, and that living composers such as Steve Heitzeg and Lori Laitman write music that is similarly attentive to the intimate, hidden beauties implicit in composing music for friends, as opposed to eternity…Laitman’s exquisite Four Dickinson Songs celebrates her own father’s 80th birthday…” (Gramophone Magazine)
