To be part of the creative process of new songs from their inception to fruition is an exhilarating – and altogether humbling – experience. Myriad externalities influence the direction of the journey from the moment the text speaks to a composer until the moment the performers speak the text; but the great wonder is in what happens in between, in the mind and hand of the composer. As a mother, I can only liken this miracle to birth: an essential force comes into the world fully formed, through the conduit of another human being. And once it arrives, you cannot conceive of it never having been. I am grateful to have been some small part of such miracles.

Press reviews

Audaud.com

Lisa Delan is still the master of this sort of recital, even more affecting and in control than the last album. I for one will be thrilled if there is yet another and I can’t think of any reason why there won’t be. PENTATONE again proves that intimate chamber music can be well-served by judicious use of the surround-sound microphones. Outstanding!
