Bach, J.S.: Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut, BWV 199 / Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 (Hunt Lieberson, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra)
Yarlung Records: YAR96298

"I remember when Lorraine sang through the opening recitative of 'Mein Herze schwimmt ein blut' during the first rehearsal for the performance with Kahane and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. The musicians sat in silence after the movement ended. At first, some wiped tears from their eyes while some clapped timidly. Then followed uproarious applause from the musicians and the few lucky guests. That first run-through was good enough for the final performance. Lorraine made it seem like she was singing this music directly to you and you alone." - Attiyeh, producer.

This is a very special recording from one of the most beloved mezzo-sopranos in recent memory, taken from us before her time.

The fifth and final volume in this popular series on Chandos is the perfect ending to a series that has been described as 'as polished as it is animated, and alert to the individuality of Lutoslawski's musical vocabulary...'
