Review By AR119056,May 2011

This recording is really growing on me – enjoying it more every time I listen to it. Michelle not only has a beautiful voice but she uses it like a master with perfect control over every little tone and inflection. She manages to express each subtle nuance in these works. She has turned what could have been ‘just something different’ into a masterpiece. Bravo Michelle!

Review By,July 2011

I drammi di William Shakespeare sono pieni di musica. E spesso il celebre autore cita brani musicali che all’epoca erano famosi. Un’operazione curiosa: presentare un repertorio di musiche ispirate al mondo shakespeariano. Musiche antiche, come la settecentesca «When daisies pied» di Thomas Arne con la sua imitazione del cucù, che viene presentata anche nella versione di Mervin Horder. Musiche ottocentesche e novecentesche come «I know a bank» tratto dal Sogno di una notte di mezza estate e musicata da Julius Harrison. Il mezzosoprano Michelle Breedt e la pianista Nina Schumann li interpretano in modo eccellente. © 2011
