LAITMAN, L.: Songs (Living in the Body) (Check, A. Emerson, S. Gruber, Gawrysiak, D. Taylor, D. Armstrong, Scarlata, L. Laitman)

Lori Laitman is one of America’s leading vocal composers. These 49 songs were composed between 1997 and 2017 to texts by celebrated poets including Elizabeth Bishop, Paul Celan, Dana Gioia, David Mason, Sylvia Plath, and Joyce Sutphen, on topics that range from the profound emotional impact of the Holocaust, to humorous truths of everyday life, and the comedy and tenderness of childhood. The recording also includes two instrumental pieces for saxophone and piano. This stunning program of world premiere recordings is performed by an all-star cast that includes the composer herself.
