ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
COUNTERTENOR DON KRIM does not fit the expectations we have of a modern countertenor. His voice is neither reminiscent of a choir boy nor of a mezzo-soprano. The coloration, emotionality and use of dynamic range, the naturalness and immediacy of the sound are simply unique in the countertenor sphere, recalling in many ways the magnificent, late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson.

Venturing out of the traditional countertenor repertoire for a Debut CD is unprecedented. This is the first recording of Rückert Lieder by a countertenor, and this is the first recording of the Rilke Songs since the grammy award-winning
premiere recording by Ms. Hunt Lieberson in 2006.

Artist biographies, translations and other information traditionally contained in a CD booklet, can be found in a more readable and creative form at www.countertenorblues.com

THE RILKE SONGS ARE DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF LORRAINE HUNT
LIEBERSON, FOR WHOM THEY WERE COMPOSED BY HER HUSBAND, PETER LIEBERSON.

Brilliant Classical operatic album
Don Krim's classical operatic album is titled "I am no longer of this world." This is the countertenor's debut album, featuring Suzanne Bradbury on the piano, in which he sings Gustav Mahler's "Ruckert Lieder" and Peter Lieberson's "Rilke Songs." Krim’s voice is breathtaking and while it may remind one of a mature choir-boy or a mezzo-soprano, it actually is neither and superior at the same time. "Atmen, du unsichtbares, Gedicht!" is a song in which we can hear how his voice can lie in such a high register, yet also resonate deeply, in this song that embodies both dark and bright themes simultaneously. In "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" one can really hear the beauty within Suzanna Bradbury's finesse upon the piano and it interplays with Don's soaring voice. This is an album that any fan of classical vocal composition would enjoy. If you already enjoy the likes of Lorraine Hunt Lieberson then "I am no longer of this world" is an album you will want to hear immediately.
