Lucette van den Berg

De Stentor - CD recensie Zing Shtil

CD Review 'Zing shtil/ yiddish songs'

It's no ordinary performance when a singer is able to surprise us with a collection of Yiddish songs. Soprano singer Lucette van den Berg proves that by using good taste, having a splendid voice and picking a choice orchestra a cd can be made that does, in fact, add something substantial to what is already there. It's a good thing that her repertoire deviates from the usual, and that she chose songs carrying a consistent atmosphere, songs that fit her voice perfectly. The subdued accompaniments are a testimony of her feeling and class. When you hear 'Du shaynst vi di zun' or the intense ' Mayn rue-plats' you will be convinced as well. It's a dream debut!
