“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before,” said Leonard Bernstein. By way of turning his words to music, this album introduces American soprano, Nadine Sierra, with a smoky and lush core sound, and her debut album, There’s a Place for Us. It is not only a showcase of her stunning, MET-seasoned vocalism but also a reflection of America’s history as a refuge for all. In this spirit, the album features music by Leonard Bernstein and émigrés Igor Stravinsky and Osvaldo Golijov, as well as songs by Villa-Lobos in homage to Sierra’s Portuguese roots. Offering her sumptuous voice in a range of genres from Brazilian art music to American opera and art song, Sierra reminds us that all music and all people have a place in America. This, surely, is the soprano album of the year!
