Jamie Barton, mezzo-soprano & Jake Heggie, piano

Since winning the Main and Song prizes at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, Georgia native Jamie Barton has conquered all before her, garnering international acclaim as “a leader of a new generation of opera stars” with a voice “rich and full of color, pouring from her with ease” (The New York Times).
 
“It took no more than a dozen notes, one line of text, to recognize that Jamie Barton possesses a rare voice…Schubert’s ‘Gretchen am Spinnrade’ became a miniature opera in Barton’s fierce interpretation,” admires The Star Tribune, hailing her as “a musician of great confidence and courage.”
 
“With Heggie and Barton, expect the expected,” declares Limelight Magazine of their CD release, Unexpected Shadows, in which “prize-winning mezzo Jamie Barton displays all her remarkable expressive and vocal skills…An exceptional talent…with lithe athleticism, creamy tone and an ability to raise your neck hairs.”
 
“Barton’s pristine diction relates the story. Her voice is both uplifting and ruminative, a powerful embodiment of the composer’s conception of music as transformative, healing, and humanizing…with her skillful changes in voice and character, we don’t need much more to get a vivid image of the song. She sings with so much conviction and excitement that it’s impossible not to be drawn in” (The Classic Review).

PROGRAM

Songs by Henry PURCELL, Franz SCHUBERT, Florence PRICE, Johannes BRAHMS, and Jake HEGGIE, including the Georgia premiere of Heggie’s song cycle for Barton, What I Miss Most…, with new texts by Joyce DiDonato, Patti LuPone, Sister Helen Prejean, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Kathleen Kelly.
