About

“At That Hour” showcases art songs by pianist/composer Henry Dehlinger set to poetry by James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Dante, Edgar Allen Poe, Oscar Wilde, and Biblical and Hebrew texts.

This original recital album features Henry’s close collaborators, the husband-and-wife team soprano Danielle Talamantes and bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson.

San Francisco-native Henry Dehlinger, a prodigiously talented pianist and singer, turned his hand to full-time composition in 2015. The skill and splendour of his music belies the relatively brief number of years he has committed pen to paper to create a considerable oeuvre of orchestral, chamber and choral music. His natural affinity for vocal music has also led to a number of works for solo voice. At That Hour is a superlative showcase for Henry’s craftmanship as well as his close collaborators, husband-and-wife team soprano Danielle Talamantes and bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson. All of the songs on this original album of Henry’s art songs were written expressly for Danielle’s and Kerry’s impassioned voices.

The title track opens Henry’s 10-part song cycle set to texts by James Joyce. Inspiration for other songs comes from poetry by T. S. Eliot, Dante, Edgar Allen Poe, Oscar Wilde, and Hebrew writings. Throughout, Henry’s modern yet tonal compositional voice shines through as he renders a diverse palette of musical styles to amplify the words he sets to music.

“simply brilliant ... a knock-your-socks-off performance” - Audiophile Audition (on Danielle Talamantes)

“a smooth and dignified sound” - Washington Post (on Kerry Wilkerson)
