Daniel Okulitch Sings New American Art Songs

Daniel Okulitch: The New American Art Song (GPRecords) Hailed by the Journal of Singing as “the most exciting and impressive art song of the last decade,” Okulitch effortlessly, Okulitch effortlessly delivers a host of intricately crafted melodies from composers Ricky Ian Gordon, Jake Heggie, Lowell Lieberman, and Glen Roven on this aurally stimulating disc. The selections range from Gordon’s teasing and delicate musical settings of works by Gwendolyn Brooks and Dorothy Parker, to two selections from Heggie’s ironic and more flamboyant Of Dogs and Cats, to Roven’s almost instantly accessible melodies for the song cycle Songs From the Underground. Okulitch’s mellifluous and chameleon-like delivery makes each of the 29 tunes sparkle, and it’s difficult to imagine a more enjoyable snapshot of a new breed of American songwriters.
