Editorial Reviews

BBC Music Magazine - George Hall
Lorraine Hunt Lieberson equals [accompanist Peter Serkin] in her musical insight and in her complete security of approach to her own instrument. Her huge potential range of dynamics allows her to shape each song individually, while her poised understanding of Pierre Louÿs's Debussyan texts makes them infinitely suggestive.
