Mexico City, D F Miercoles - A Spanish Review [ 28 Sep 1983 ]

Lee-Alison Gave a Good Concert

In the great hall called George Messersmith in the Mexican-North American Institute of Culture, the North American singer Lee-Alison gave a recital focussing on music of the Americas.

The recital began with an inspired interpretation of Baroque and Classical Spanish songs of the 17th and 18th centuries. This was new repertoire for the audience who showed their appreciation with enthusiastic applause. As well, the graciousness of the performer and her elegant presence endeared her to the audience in a very big way.

There was in the audience Elisa Kahan, Javier Arnaldo, Edelmira Zuniga, and Maria Luisa Hernandez, a music critic who commented during intermission on the excellent technique of the vocalist. Lee-Alison completed the first half with five popular Argentine songs by Ginastera and two arias from Bizets Carmen.

In the second part one heard Lee-Alison sing Rain Has Fallen, The Secrets of the Old, and Sure on this Shining Night by the brilliant composer Samuel Barber. In the third part, the audience went wild with applause for a selection of Cole Porter songs and appreciated the wonderful support from eminent pianist Nadia Stankovich who accompanied the artist in this unforgettable recital.
