June 7, 2016

It's here! Available at all good record shops and all good online sources. And here is the response so far...

Awarded Editor's Choice in Gramophone magazine - "Diana Moore is expressive with words and musical details in Spring’s splendid arias, such as ‘Canta dolce il rosignuolo’ (in which woodwinds sweetly imitate a nightingale’s song)"

"the vocal writing is fluid and winningly elaborate, and the performers deliver it smartly — particularly mezzo-soprano Diana Moore, who makes the triumph of Spring feel entirely merited." Joshua Kosman, SF Gate

"McGegan also achieved maximum quality. English mezzo Moore’s voice is warm, plush, full, and eminently smooth, with an air of nobility and grace that never gets in the way of her fleet coloratura." Jason Victor Serinus, San Francisco Classical Voice

"Among the members of the soloist quintet, English mezzo-soprano Diana Moore stood out in the role of Spring (Primavera), the winning contestant. Her dark-hued voice made especially memorable such arias as 'Già fermo sull’empia ruota' or the 'nightingale' dialogue with flautist Stephen Schultz, 'Canta dolce il rosignuolo'." Edward Sava-Segal,

As Holofernes, Diana Moore combined military grandeur and suave seductiveness into a superb portrait of a warrior at play on the fields of love.

Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle
