5.0 out of 5 stars Lori Laitman's Masterful Achievement June 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with Lori Laitman's luminous art songs last year when I discovered this composer's debut album, Mystery. I was struck by the freshness of Ms. Laitman's harmonies, the beauty and accessibility of her vocal lines, and her talent for illuminating the unique voice of each poet she sets. My admiration has grown exponentially as I've listened to her second CD, Dreaming-Songs of Lori Laitman. The new disc features two of her signature Emily Dickinson cycles, sung to perfection by soprano Jennifer Check, as well as four darkly hilarious Thomas Lux songs, performed with daffy brio by baritone Randall Scarlata. Mezzo Patricia Green brings the Sara Teasdale cycle, "The Years," to life, while soprano Sari Gruber gives sparkling clarity to "Sunflowers," three Mary Oliver songs that rank among Ms. Laitman's finest. One of my favorite singers, the always-intelligent William Sharp, movingly portrays the pain and loss of "Holocaust 1944," a stirring addition to Ms. Laitman's Holocaust canon featuring texts of authors who were victims of Nazi persecution. Gary Karr expertly accompanies the latter cycle with his virtuosic doublebass, whereas 22 other songs feature sensitive piano work by the incomparable Warren Jones and Ms. Laitman. I don't think it's hyperbole to say that Dreaming is a masterful achievement by a composer writing at the apex of her powers. For me, the recording offers 79 minutes of sheer aural bliss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Music December 9, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I listen to all types of music, including a lot of classical, but I've never spent much time in the art song/lieder genre. Recently a friend gave me "Dreaming - The Songs of Lori Laitman", and all I can say is Wow. What an amazing achievement. The songs are outstanding, the lyrics profound and heartfelt, the melodies rich with power and passion, and the performances absolutely first rate. If you like your music beautiful and have a preference for excellence, do yourself a favor and pick up this disc today. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reprint from The Journal of Singing, Jan/Feb 2004 January 20, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The title of this disk and the image of a sleeping child on the cover might lead one to assume that this is one more "Music to Relax By" recording to add to countless others that have already been made and that threaten to overwhelm the planet. This is actually a stunning collection of widely varied songs by one of the finest art song composers on the scene today. Lori Laitman deservedly stands shoulder to shoulder with Ned Rorem for her uncommon sensitivity to text, her loving attention to the human voice and its capabilities, and her extraordinary palette of musical colors and gestures. One intriguing entry in her resume is a masters degree in flute performance (from Yale School of Music), and it would be interesting to inquire how she believes her extensive background as an instrumentalist has contributed to her growing mastery of vocal composition.
This collection is superbly executed in every respect, not only in the smallest musical details, but also in matters of presentation and organization. The disk is about as generous as current technology allows, and features a thoroughly riveting range of song cycles presented with thoughtful introductions from the composer in the liner notes. Her comments are succinct yet heartfelt and seem designed not so much for scholars as for ordinary art song listeners. The singers are able champions of Laitman's music, boasting strong and attractive voices under impressive technical control, and performing these songs most expressively. Warren Jones is pianist for most of the songs and offers his usual brilliant work.
Aside from the singers and Mr. Jones, the collection also boasts the presence of one of the world's finest string bass players, Gary Karr, a past teacher of Laitman's husband.
