ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The word fashion is generally defined as the characteristic feature, manner, or mode in which an artistic work is presented. This particular album features art song especially selected, recorded, and presented to represent and honor the fashion of the song recital: carefully selected composers, musical styles, and languages that provide a pleasing arc of sound and emotion. These particular song selections provide a well-rounded late romantic art song experience that amply utilizes the range of the soprano. The listener will be taken on a musical journey of many different colors and levels of intensity. The recital fashion is collaboration between soloist and pianist, and collaborative artist Scott Watkins helped to make an album as close to live conditions as possible. Michael Olson employed minimal editing as sound engineer, lending a spontaneity and transparency to the album that is refreshing and engaging.

William Thomas Walker reviewed Fashion Sense: Songs in Recital for cvnc.org: "Beasley's selections reflect considerable intelligence and taste. Her mastery of four languages and vocal technique are consistently evident. Her care for words is reflected in her application of her palette of tone color and carefully shaded dynamics. Her Debussy is intoxicating while her performances of the Tchaikovsky and Strauss are searing and dramatic." Read the full review at cvnc.org.

As a concert and recital artist, Beasley sings in all styles and has performed with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, the Northwest Festival Orchestra in Chicago, Southwest Michigan Symphony, Elmhurst Symphony, the Northwest Indiana Symphony, DuPage Opera Theatre, the New Philharmonic Orchestra, Light Opera Works, Music at Main, Friday Musicale, Music@Main, Jacksonville Chamber Music Society, Jacksonville University Orchestra, the Grant Park Symphony Chorus and the Lyric Opera of Chicago Chorus at venues such as the Times-Union Center in Jacksonville, the Star Plaza in Indiana, Chicago’s Millennium Park , and the Civic Opera House in Chicago. Roles include Micaëla, Dorine, Serpina, Rosina, Cinderella, Angelica, Josephine, Barbarina, and Cio-cio San in productions of Fidelio, Turandot, Into the Woods, Suor Angelica, Barber of Seville, Tartuffe, H.M.S.
