New Jersey Star Ledger, Mahler 4

Mahler’s 4th Symphony, with the New Philharmonic of New Jersey:

“The brightest part of the performance was the finale, sung with charm and grace by soprano Amy Goldstein, who was, as it turned out, as last-minute substitute. One would never have known if Hyman had not made the announcement beforehand. She seemed perfectly poised, very much on top of a piece that is as complicated as only such a combination of high ambition and false simplicity can be.”

–Peter Spencer, The New Jersey Star Ledger
