Sasha Cooke If You Love For Beauty Volume 1 180g 45RPM Vinyl LP
Award Winning 2012 Solo Debut Mastered for 180g 45RPM Vinyl LP by Bernie Grundman!
If You Love For Beauty, showcases Metropolitan Opera and Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke - called a "luminous standout" (New York Times) and "equal parts poise, radiance and elegant directness" (Opera News) - and The Colburn Orchestra conducted by Yehuda Gilad. The recording includes Mahler's "Rückert-Lieder," the aria Am I in Your Light? from Doctor Atomic by John Adams, and Handel's aria, Ombra mai fu performed with chamber orchestra. The members of The Colburn Orchestra create a distinct orchestral sound (a great one), and Maestro Gilad elicits sensitive and lyrical interpretations of the repertoire. This recording of Mahler's Rückert – Lieder won the Audio Oasis Award at The Show in Newport, 2012.
"Mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke has been recognized as a young superstar in concert and opera for many years now, but it was as Kitty Oppenheimer in The Metropolitan Opera's 2008 production of John Adams' Doctor Atomic that I first heard her. Half way through her first act aria "Am I in Your Light?" I knew I wanted to work with her. Despite her ferociously busy schedule Sasha responded immediately with a "Yes!" to my suggestion we make her debut album. Since then we had the great pleasure to hear Sasha in Southern California in her debut performances with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Sasha won her first Grammy Award for Sony's DVD release of Doctor Atomic from The Met.
"The Colburn Orchestra, close to home but international in quality, proved an equally powerful draw. These musicians, all members of the Colburn Conservatory conducted by Music Director Yehuda Gilad and led by concertmaster Caitlin Kelley, enrich our lives in Los Angeles. When I hear these musicians live, and on this recording, I am happily reminded of the successful recordings Mercury Records created with Howard Hanson and the Eastman Rochester Orchestra. Or of the sound of the Berlin Philharmonic under Simon Rattle." – Bob Attiyeh, producer
