"Connection: Three Song Cycles
of Jake Heggie"
Famed for his operatic music, Jake Heggie has always been a devoted and prolific songwriter. Three early song cycles for soprano and piano are featured in this release, each cycle exploring the many varied facets of the three women depicted, including Ophelia and Eve. Each was written for a specific singer and they all reflect Heggie’s personal and exciting lexicon of musical influences, ranging from folk and jazz, to art song and musical theater.
The three cycles are:
Natural Selection (1997)
Songs and Sonnets to Ophelia (1999)
Eve-Song (1996) - *first complete recording of this cycle
