"'Dawn Upshaw Sings Wolf, Strauss, Rachmaninoff, Ives, and Weill' seems to hedge its bets by touching many of the important modern art song bases. By so doing, it demonstrates Upshaw's range in conveying the romantic angst of Wolf's interpretation of Goethe poems to the stark modern angles of Kurt Weill's two songs.
While I believe Upshaw is not as strong as, for example, Anne Sofie Von Otter, I think her interpretation of Wolf songs comes off just a bit better. At least it is a very nice contrast. I also think she will not displace Ute Lemper as a Weill interpreter, but for us Weill fans, every new interpretation is welcome.
If you like female art song vocalists, Upshaw is definately worth your time and money."
