“Here’s an opera-singer-goes-off-piste CD that’s unusually rewarding” proclaims The Guardian of the 2017 release, Thousands of Miles – a rich and varied program of songs expressing intense longing by composers forced to leave their homelands for the United States. The artists reprise their “fruitful partnership” in the intimate environment and superb acoustics of Spivey Hall.
At the Metropolitan Opera, “The agile, vivacious Kate Lindsey won hearts and stole scenes” (The New York Times). This American singing actress infuses her performances with vivid character. Her collaborator, French jazz pianist Baptiste Trotignon, “excels at creating quiet soundscapes” (ArtsATL.com) and “has arranged Weill’s songs himself, adding often dazzling improvisations to their basic melodic and rhythmic material” (Gramophone).
