The vocalist on today’s CD is in the mezzo-soprano range.
Which means that I can enjoy this music even if I don’t enjoy this music.
Believe it or not, I just discovered a YouTube video clip titled How to Sing Mezzo Soprano. (Not that I intend to learn it, mind you. I’d need a YouTube clip titled “How to Sing When You Can’t Carry a Tune If Your Life Depended On It.”)
Too many to name. There are 26 tracks on today’s CD, totaling over one hour of music.
Stephanie Iranyi mezzo-soprano
Helmut Deutsch piano
Compared to the previous couple of CDs, this is a breath of fresh air.
But it’s still only a breath.
True fresh air would be Steve Perry, formerly of Journey. That’s a tenor I can enjoy.
Or dramatic soprano Floor Jansen of Nightwish.
I could listen to those people all day long.
These Brahms Songs CDs…
Not so much.
