Spanish melancholy is a fierce, proud and frequently angry condition. It needs an extraordinary voice to express its facets over an entire recital, and it has found that in Patricia Petibon, whose experience in Baroque and French showpieces is matched by a capacity for utterances that plumb the depths of despair.

Its four songs offer Petibon persuasive vocal and interpretive opportunities. In "A la mar," the singer pours out a mournful melody over a haunting ostinato in the orchestra. All are excellent. February — Vol.

In Review. In some ways, composer Iain Bell's and librettist Mark Campbell's Stonewall , a seventy-five-minute one-act opera given its world premiere as part of New York City Opera's Pride series, buckles under the weight of its good intentions.
