Moments of Love: Songs by Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Wyner, Hahn & Britten


This song recital documents the long and brilliant partnership of soprano Dominique Labelle and composer/pianist, Yehudi Wyner. Dominique Labelle first came to prominence as Donna Anna in Peter Sellars’s daring production of Don Giovanni, which she performed in New York, Paris and Vienna. She has made many recordings, including Handel’s Arminio (Virgin Classics), which won the 2002 Handel Prize. Yehudi Wyner won the Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for his piano concerto, Chiavi in Mano. The work was recorded by Robert Levin, piano; the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Robert Spano, conductor, and is available on BRIDGE 9282.
