According to The Journal of Singing as quoted in the liner notes, Lori Laitman (b.1955) is “one of the finest art song composers on the scene today, who deservedly stands shoulder to shoulder with Ned Rorem for her uncommon sensitivity to text, her loving attention to the human voice, and her extraordinary palette of musical colors and gestures”. I must agree. After listening to this several times, I have discovered to my great pleasure what a fine composer she is….Many of the texts of Laitman’s songs are very recent poems, and she selects wonderful texts that have depth and richness…The composer’s notes about each work are illuminating…This is music worth knowing, and these artists are exceptionally adept at helping us hear just how good it is.
