Whether you're a lover of the avant garde or the traditional, you won't be able to resist this fascinating program of 20th century compositions and expressions.
"Lyricism is an abstract concept ... for me it signifies a combination of aesthetic and artistic beauty with intensely personal expressive qualities. All of the repertoire I picked for this project embody this lyricism in the context of distinctly twentieth-century outlooks and compositional techniques." - Jonathan Rohr
Zen Wu, soprano, presents La voix humaine:
"Although the corded telephone and operator are remnants of a prior era, substance abuse, heartbreak, depression and suicide have endured, dare I say even flourished through, the turn of the 21st century, and they lend a hyper-verismo sense of gravitas to this offering in the operatic form." - Zen Wu
