Not a fan of Glass? Tara could change your mind.
on 28 January 2013
This is a powerful set of tunes. I am not a fan of Mr. Glass but, if there's anyone who could change my mind, it's Tara Hugo. She manages to locate the heart and soul of his music. It reminds me that, just as one must have actors with heart and soul to make a play by G.B. Shaw come to life, so too with a composer as famously cerebral as Philip Glass. He's fortunate to have her.
Together with some well-chosen lyrics, including several of her own, Ms. Hugo draws us into and fully inhabits each song. An artist is someone who makes you see something in a new way, and I've had my eyes and ears opened by this disc. Emotionally compelling and beautifully sung. Give Glass a chance!
