Lorraine Forever: On the peerless voice of Lorraine Hunt Lieberson

October 4th, 2013

(Re-run: This program originally aired on April 22, 2011)
The magnificent American mezzo soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, who had strong ties to the Bay Area, and died at a young age in 2006, is beloved by classical music industry insiders, but isn’t as well known to the broad public as she ought to be. Hard on the heels of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra’s CD release of Hunt Lieberson’s interpretations of Handel arias and Les Nuits D’ete by Berlioz recorded in the 1990s, Philharmonia Baroque’s music director, Nicholas McGegan, joins VoiceBox host Chloe Veltman for a profile of this unforgettable vocalist.
