Review of Lauren Wagner’s recital with pianist Frederick Weldy, May 5, 1993, Weill Recital Hall, which included The Strong House and To A Loose Woman, from Lori’s first cycle The Metropolitan Tower and Other Songs.

Ms. Wagner has put together a program of considerable beauty and consistency and made a case for the richness of the American song repertory….Of the most recent pieces, Lori Laitman’s “Strong House” and “To A Loose Woman” …were especially effective.
