Best of 2017 (The New York Times)

Closing the distance between classical music and Broadway, between the old world and the new, this album is born out of a stunning encounter between two performers. American mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey is an opera star whose career is skyrocketing. She has stunned audiences with her performances of Mozart and Purcell, but grew up steeped in the music of Broadway, from Gershwin to Cole Porter. Baptiste Trotignon is a multiple award-winning jazz pianist who plays with big names like Brad Mehldau and Tom Harrell, but who has a long-held interest in classical music.

Together, they have produced a rich and varied program around the songs of Kurt Weill, from “Nanna’s Lied” to “Trouble Man,” as well as classics from The Threepenny Opera and Lost in the Stars.

This journey through three European languages brings the listener to the very beginnings of jazz and features all-new arrangements and deft improvisations by pianist Trotignon. Lindsey and Trotignon also pay homage to three composers who, like Weill, all emigrated to the United States: Alma Mahler, Zemlinsky and Korngold.
