Songs of Lee Hoiby
Ursula Kleinecke-Boyer (soprano), Maria Perez-Goodman (piano)
Lee Hoiby is widely recognized as one of the most significant composers in the genre of the American art song — a genre to which he has been contributing for more than half a century. His affinity for setting texts of great literary value, and of considerable variety, is evident in the songs recorded here. From the haunting melodies of Winter Song to the tongue-in-cheek drama of Jabberwocky; from the biting ironies of The Message to the sweet simplicity of The Shepherd; and from the densely chromatic textures of Evening to the charming humor of The Serpent—Hoiby’s prodigious gifts for lyricism, atmosphere, and characterization as a song composer are much in evidence in this collection. Exquisitely performed by Ursula Kleinecke-Boyer and Maria Perez-Goodman, this is the only recording available dedicated exclusively to Hoiby’s songs.
“Appealing' is the word that kept coming to mind as I listened to this recording...one hears Hoiby's ability to create a memorable vocal melody and his fondness for high, soaring lines. ...This is a most welcome release.” Fanfare
