Andrew Garland: American Portraits
Featuring Donna Loewey, piano
With songs by Tom Cipullo, Jake Heggie, Lori Laitman & Stephen Paulus
American baritone Andrew Garland has been saluted by The New York Times as having a “distinctly American presence” with a “big voice” who is “an able and comfortable performer, and a sincere one,” and by Opera News as having “coloratura [which] bordered on the phenomenal as he dashed through the music’s intricacies with his warm baritone, offering plenty of elegance and glamour in his smooth acting.” Here he sings major new song cycles from four of the most important and prestigious voices writing American Art songs today. He is accompanied by the foremost collaborative in the United States, Donna Loewy.
