About

To many observers, no artist has ever replaced the great mezzo-soprano Jan DeGaetani as an interpreter of contemporary song. Writing of her, New York Times critic Harold C Schonberg called her “the finest song recitalist that the United States has ever produced.

DeGaetani, with her magnificent duo-partner, Gilbert Kalish, performed together for thirty-years, the partnership ending with DeGaetani's death in 1989.

This two-CD set gives us one of their final recitals together, and includes the wide-ranging repertoire that these two artists were known for.
