About

‘The moon’s a gong, hung in the wild’ is a sublime collection of songs by Jake Heggie - by turns rhapsodic, humorous and nostalgic - performed with passion and commitment by two of the composer’s most ardent devotees, Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager and Dutch pianist Maurice Lammerts van Bueren, a devotee of Heggie’s music who has given numerous premieres of the composer’s work.

American composer Jake Heggie has penned some of the most beautiful vocal music of our day, and his operas and songs have been championed by some of today’s foremost artists, including Joyce di Donato, Susan Graham and Frederica von Stade on the acclaimed AVIE release, ‘Passing By’ (AV2198).

This sublime collection from the song cycles Statuesque, Songs to the Moon, The Breaking Waves and Folk Songs is by turns rhapsodic, humorous and nostalgic.
