Men's Songs, Women's Voices
Georgine Resick, soprano
Soprano Georgine Resick's latest Bridge CD presents a fascinating recital of songs by male composers, based on poetry by women. The disc begins with the premiere recording of John Harbison's "Mirabai Songs" in their voice and piano version, and presents other rarely heard songs sung in French, German and English (translations enclosed). Of special interest is Korngold's voluptuous and rarely performed song cycle, "Unvergänglichkeit". Georgine Resick is an internationally recognized soprano in both the operatic and concert fields. Renowned for her Mozart and Strauss interpretations, she has sung a wide variety of leading roles with the Vienna State Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, Paris Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and numerous others. Warren Jones has been the distinguished accompanist for Marilyn Horne, Luciano Pavarotti, Kiri Te Kanawa, Kathleen Battle and many other great vocalists of our time. Georgine Resick and Warren Jones's recent disc, "Songs of Aleksandr Grechaninov" (BRIDGE 9142), has received glowing reviews in the international press.
Reviews:“This CD has involved both a process of discovery and, pleasurably renewed encounters with familiar ‘vocal’ friends. I have enjoyed the consistent musical intelligence of both singer and pianist. Their intepretations display both the appropriate spirit and an impressive competence across a range of musical idioms.” - MusicWeb International
