Product description

Product Description

Closing the distance between classical music and Broadway, between the old world and the new, this album is born out of a stunning encounter between two performers. Kate Lindsey is an opera star whose career is skyrocketing. She has stunned audiences with her performances of Mozart and Purcell. Baptiste Trotignon is a multi award-winning jazz pianist who plays with big names like Brad Mehldau or Tom Harrell, but who has a long-held interest in classical music, even composing a piano concerto for Nicholas Angelich. Together, they have produced a rich and varied programme around the songs of Kurt Weill, from Nanna's Lied to Trouble Man, and classics from The Threepenny Opera and Lost in the Stars.

This journey through three European languages brings the listener to the very beginnings of jazz, and features all-new arrangements and deft improvisations by pianist Baptiste Trotignon. Lindsey and Trotignon also pay homage to three composers who, like Weill, all emigrated to the United States: Alma Mahler, Zemlinsky and Korngold. London-based American mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey joins Alpha Classics for several recordings over the coming years.


The American mezzo Kate Lindsey bucks the trend on her new recital for Alpha Classics, increasingly the go-to label for exciting projects with intelligent young artists. 4 Stars --The Times

Here' an opera-singer-goes-off-piste CD that's unusually rewarding. Mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey and jazz pianist Baptiste Trotignan form a fruitful partnership for a programme centred on Kurt Weill writing from both sides of the Atlantic. Lindsey's assimilation of the style sounds near effortless, and only occasionally does she give the feeling she has anything to prove. The first song, Nanna's Lied, has her voice turning on a sixpence from Weimar drawl to a Lieder-singer's poise and back again. From the deliciously baritonal depths of Denn Wie Man Sich Bettet, So Liegt Man from the opera Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny to the Broadway sweetness of Buddy on the Nightshift is quite a jolt, but most transitions are smoother, with Trotignon imaginatively linking up some mini-medleys. The disc also takes in some little gems by other Austrian-born émigrés. Korngold's Mond, So Gehst Du Wieder Auf is a highlight; so is Alma Mahler's Hymne, which unleashes Lindsey's full classical voice, and glorious it is, too. 4 Stars. --The Guardian

The range Kate Lindsey displays on her new disc Thousands of Miles is astonishingly varied. The recital is a brilliant Vienna Secession-meets-jazz-meets-Broadway programme of Weill, Zemlinsky and Korngold.

Opera Now

It's seriously impressive; mezzo Kate Lindsey's honeyed, smoky tones allowing her to inhabit Weill's idiom with utter ease.And it's an inspired choice to have her accompanied just by jazz-pianist Baptiste Trotignon, whose idiomatic, melodically faithful arrangements are sheer perfection. --The Art`s Desk
