Songs from the Exotic

This debut from mezzo-soprano Polly May includes premiere recordings of the original versions of Judith Weir’s Songs from the Exotic and Luciano Berio’s Quattro canzoni popolari.

"The musky, warm mezzo-soprano of Polly May, and the robust piano-playing of Lucy Walker... are well-suited to this earthy repertoire... much to enjoy in this fresh and courageous venture"

"The recording is quite superb, the voice and piano are very well captured within an acoustic that is airy and clear, quite deep and just a little “dark”. A splendid CD that comes with a very high recommendation"
