Description
"Not for a long while have I heard a recital of American songs as enjoyable as this," writes the Chicago Tribune of this intriguing program. Alongside André Previn's lovely "Vocalise" and the title piece (written especially for the lyric soprano, who claims to be related to Billy "The Kid" Bonney) are Dominick Argento's world premiere of "Six Elizabethan Songs" and two classic cycles by Aaron Copland ("Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson") and Samuel Barber ("Hermit Songs").

"Chisum's words are starry-eyed. Previn sets them as she will have remembered them, touches of sweet sentiment in the voice played off against the dusty and gritty realities of the keyboard. There's more than a hint of the bar-room piano in that."—Gramophone

"Confirms her position as one of the most talented and intelligent of song singers. The pure joy of singing Bonney brings to every selection makes this program a delight. And there's her voice—an instrument of astringent, flutelike beauty that reminds one of the young Kathleen Battle."—Chicago Tribune
