This CD is a triple threat: sublime, beautiful songs, exquisite singing, masterful playing. Corinne Winters is one of America’s premier new voices, and in Steve Blier she has the collaborator of one’s dreams.
— Joyce DiDonato
What a beautiful debut album! I have great love and respect for Corinne Winters’ voice—such a charismatic, opulent sound. She and pianist Steven Blier do honor to the songs of my country, with its astounding array of cultures and styles. From bel canto to zarzuela, from folk song to art song, from north to south, this CD celebrates the glory of Spain.
— Placido Domingo

MEET THE ARTISTS


Soprano Corinne Winters and pianist Steven Blier, joined by guest artists mezzo Maya Lahyani and guitarist Oren Fader, explore the dizzying array of Iberian cultures, languages, and musical traditions.

"This CD is a tribute to Spain’s astonishing — and ravishing — musical diversity," says Blier. "Gentle impressionism, fiery dance rhythms, soaring, romantic melody, and rough peasant ballad — Spanish song embraces them all. The musical riches of this nation astonish the mind and warm the soul."

Winters adds, "Through the process of making this album, my artistic life has received an injection of renewed creativity and beauty. Most of the time, I sing romantic opera heroines. Although I thoroughly enjoy bringing the operatic warhorses to life, I paint in broad strokes for large opera houses. My work with Steven Blier has opened my eyes to a whole new world of fine brush stroke detail. He appreciates my Italianate operatic sound, but also encourages me to experiment with a more intimate, text-driven approach."
 


READ REVIEWS


Opera News raves, "Corinne Winters's slim, dark-hued soprano entices the listener in this wide-ranging collection of love songs from Spain. [It] sends the listener off wanting more... Perhaps a sequel?" 

Voix des Arts agrees, "Ms. Winters’s vocalism is consistently artful without ever seeming artificial. Their partnership [with Steven Blier] is shaped by obvious affection for the music at hand and the simple joy of two musicians interacting in ways that surprise and delight."
