The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's recording of Bernstein’s Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 with Marin Alsop, featuring mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano has recieved an OPUS KLASSIK Award. Previously known as the ECHO KLASSIK Award, winners are selected based on achievements in recorded music by a jury of German recording industry experts. The awards will be presented at a gala on October 14 at Konzerthaus Berlin.
"Cano can be very dramatic, as required, but then her soft singing in the second section of this movement, Chapter 1, 8, is exquisite. With superb sound, I am confident that this new recording will become my first place to go to for this wonderfully moving symphony." – Music Web International
