Abrahamsen: let me tell you
A riveting recording of Abrahamsen’s ‘let me tell you’ featuring Barbara Hannigan, soprano; the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Andris Nelsons, conductor.
“With the orchestra as active partner, musical time is slowed down and speeded up, creating a shifting sonic tapestry of quiet, luminous beauty. The opening haze of piccolos, violin harmonics and celesta draws you into an interior world that, once heard, is not soon forgotten. Hannigan’s singing is silvery-pure of tone and refined of expression, and she receives urgently committed support from Nelsons and his fine Bavarian ensemble. Highly recommended.” (Chicago Tribune)
