Julianne Baird in Songs of Love and War
"Julianne Baird has studied this repertoire from both a performer's and a musicologist's view, and her singing is informed by both perspectives. Again, Baird's emotional range is enormous, and her understanding of the Baroque idiom is a joy to hear."
Stereophile (February 1991)
is a stirring singer... Both... have been recorded before, but rarely
with the combination of authenticity, and passion that Baird brings to
them... THis is a winner--- highly recommended."
Classical (December 1991)
is one of less than a handful of sopranos active today who sings early
music with such commanding authority and beauty of sound and phrasing"
Billboard (August 1990)
pieces... demand a level of skill and artistry that Julianne Baird displays
in abundance. Her voice is beautiful and complex and seemingly effortless.
In all, Ms. Baird excels."
Harmonia (May 1993)
is singing of extraordinary beauty and expressive variety.... I have
heard an intelligence that misses not a thing. Yet nothing seems
calculated. Beautiful voice, beautiful emotional experience."
