Knussen New York debut

The New York debut of GPD candidate Sonya Knussen, mezzo-soprano, with the Red Light New Music Company at Symphony Space was reviewed by Allan Kozinn of The New York Times. Kozinn wrote, “In two madrigals, “Tu m’uccidi, o crudele” and “Moro, lasso,” the vocal lines, shaped gracefully here by Sonya Knussen, a mezzo-soprano, are offset by quirkily revised accompaniments that expand on Gesualdo’s penchant for acidic harmony.”
