Angelika Kirchschlager & Jake Heggie & n/a : Moon's a Gong Hung in the Wild
American composer Jake Heggie has penned some of the most beautiful vocal music of our day, and his operas and songs have been championed by some of today s foremost artists including Joyce di Donato, Susan Graham, and Frederica von Stade on the acclaimed AVIE release Passing By. On The moon s a gong, hung in the wild, Grammy®-nominated Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager is joined by the great Dutch lieder pianist Maurice Lammerts van Bueren, a devotee of Heggie s music who has given numerous premieres of the composer s work. This sublime collection from the song cycles Statuesque, Songs to the Moon, The Breaking Waves, and Folk Songs is by turns rhapsodic, humorous, and nostalgic.
