Barnaby Rayfield
Fanfare, March 2016

The very young Polish mezzo Iwona Sakowicz is nothing less than committed, demonstrating real engagement with the Psalm settings. Her voice won’t be to all tastes, indeed there is something very old-fashioned and mature sounding about her vibrato, but the tone is generally lovely and she can colour and inflect the enigmatic writing very well. The simplicity and rising devotion of the sixth Biblical Song, “Hear my Prayer O Lord,” is brilliantly conveyed, as she can conjure up both religious fervour and childlike wonderment. It helps too that she is beautifully supported by Manuel Lange on piano. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review
