Julianne Baird: Bartok and Kodaly
"One must emphasize the originality of this recording which comes to us [in France] from the other side of the Atlantic. .. The [Crofut Consort] is to be thanked for the brilliant conception and congratulated on the splendid realization of the project. The songs of Kodaly, interspersed throughout the program are performed here with great tranquility by Julianne Baird."
Diapason (Paris, France - February 1993)
is a lovely and lovingly-produced DC... the musicians gave themselves
a free hand with the arrangements... Altering the original orchestration
gives the music a certain freshness and folksiness. Soprano Julianne Baird's
contributions are stunning..."
