Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful document of a truly outstanding singer. It is the complete programme of a concert which Lorraine Hunt gave at the Wigmore Hall London in 1998, accompanied only by Roger Vignoles' piano. In this intimate setting, the natural expressiveness of her voice in these deeply felt performances becomes almost overwhelming. If you know her only as a fine operatic singer, this lieder recital is a must, and a moving reminder of what we have lost.

Format: Audio CD
This recording of Lieberson comes within a year of her untimley death, although it was recorded way back at the Wigmore Hall in 1998. Knowing it's live brings an immediacy not apparent even in her great Bach and Handel discs. The knowledgeable audience knows its singers and her performance of the Mahler Ruckert Lieder (with piano accompaniment rather than the more usual orchestral support) is the greatest I've encountered - intimate, moving and utterly involving. Like all great singers she's better when she sings quietly. This is a unique recording of a great artist who died just as her star was at its zenith - the Kathleen Ferrier of our time.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It took me a while to "get" this lovely voice, whose warmth and vibrancy is of a subtler kind than the richer, more refulgent tones of mezzos such as Janet Baker but after I had fallen in love with Lorraine Hunt Lieberson's live Berlioz recital from Berkeley (see my review) I returned to other discs such as this live Wigmore Hall debut recording from 1998. The voice is utterly even throughout its range, plangent and malleable with a peculiarly immediate quality common to great voices that makes you forget technique and concentrate upon the emotions being expressed. The blandness I sometimes associate with lighter mezzos such as Anna Sophie von Otter is entirely absent and she often reminds me of the late, great American singer Tatiana Troyanos.

The programme here was judiciously selected and at its heart is the Mahler song cycle. The ever-sensitive Roger Vignole's provides nuanced and dynamically shaded accompaniment of such distinction as almost to make one forget the orchestral versions and it is certain a welcome novelty to hear these smaller-scale accounts, so intimate and immediate. I have little time for the Lieberson songs and skip them but they are there to provide modernity and variety for those who appreciate them. The Handel arias are simply gorgeous: searing and poignant, exquisitely sung with ringing top notes and proper trills. The gem of the recital for me is the dignified and soulful version of "Deep River" - and the reason why I bought this in the first place, having heard a snippet. The sound is excellent, the audience very quiet. A beautiful disc.

Being a fan of Janet Baker, I felt her take on the Rukert lieder was not as compelling. However, her luminosity of tone shines through every song on this disc and underlines how her early death robbed us of a great artist.

A reissued recital in tribute to a great artist 31 May 2007
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lorraine Hunt Lieberson got her just due as a great singer only in the last seven years or so of her life. She had sung gloriously at the New York City Opera without being offered a chance to debut at the Met until she was in her forties and made a huge success as Dido in Berlioz's Les Troyens. Now that she is gone, her rpemature death has inspsired a number of tribute albums, of which this 1998 recital in Wigmore Hall is one of the best.

For one thing, it's her only solo recital on disk, and it features some staples of her repertoire--two arias from Handel's Theodora, two beautiful Rilke settings by Petyer Lieberson, and the spiritual 'Deep River' as one of the encores. Hunt Lieberson was also a great Mahler singer but never recored any. She was deeply moving in the Third Sym. as she is here in the five Ruckert lieder. Roger Nognobles offers exceptionally sensitive accompaniments, particularly in the Mahler--I'd rank this CD as first choice if you want these songs outside their usual orchestral setting.

In sum, a unique recital form a much loved and greatly missed singer.

how do you even begin to comment on this singer? 22 Jun 2007
By Edie Sousa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am fortunate to work in an office with walls and a door, where I can actually play music without disturbing anyone. Lately, because work has been particularly stressful, I've been playing and replaying my Hunt Lieberson CD's. Sometimes I am forced to just stop what I'm doing and listen, because I can't help it. Other times I'm aware of this glorious, comforting, melodic background to my work that makes everything I do more tolerable and less fraught. To say that I'm awestruck by this woman's gift would be the grossest of understatements. I don't recall ever responding to music in this way--and I am a singer. No one who cares about vocal music should be without all of Hunt Lieberson's work. Simply extraordinary.

Beautiful Tribute 15 July 2007
By Caroline Trippe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The re-issue of (AT LAST!) of this live concert is a fitting tribute to the late Lorraine Hunt-Lieberson. The achingly beautiful Mahler lieder and the joyous Handel arias for which she was so well known, are exquisitely and movingly sung. This is a must-have for those who loved this great artist. Her favorite encore number, "Deep River" could melt a heart of stone.

Lorraine Hunt Lieberson: Still Very much In Memory 29 Oct 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Few singers have been so cherished after an early demise as Lorraine Hunt Lieberson. She was, and thanks to recordings, remains a consummate artist. Not only did she have the gift of a ravishing sound to her voice, but she also had the intelligence and sensitivity to make everything she performed sound as though it was a premiere. She is profoundly missed.

Amazon.com has continued to stock the Wigmore Hall recordings of such great artists as Lieberson, Christine Brewer, and Angelika Kirschschlager - recordings that not only show the grandeur of the acoustic of this great hall but also the quality of respect the audience pays to the performer. In this recording Lieberson is accompanied by Roger Vignoles in a lush reading of Mahler's 'Rückert Lieder', as well as arias from Handel's 'Theodora', Peter Lieberson's Rilke Songs (2) and an aria from his 'Ashoka's Dream'. She then honors her audience with Brahms' 'Unbewegte laue Luft' and one of the most moving performances of the spiritual 'Deep River' we are likely to hear as encores. It is a great performance, beautifully recorded, and a fine tribute to a great lady of music. Grady Harp, October 10
