Album Notes
Lucette van den Berg was educated at Zwolle Conservatory as a soloist. Her post-graduation studies were guided by Cora Canne Meyer and Kevin Smith. After this, Lucette attended master classes by Adrienne Cooper and Michael Alpert at Yiddish summer Weimar, Germany, where she met the Yiddish composer Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman. In 1996, Lucette was awarded the second prize at the Euregio Vocalists Concourse. The jury was deeply impressed by her poetic expression and her extraordinary voice.
Van den Berg performed in operas by Mozart, Puccini, Lortzing, Bernstein and Weill. She contributed to radio broadcasts by the WDR (Germany), KRO and AVRO (Netherlands).
Lucette has experienced considerable succes performing Yiddish songs, a catagory that holds her special affection and in wich she can use her colourfull voice to best effect.

Reviewers wrote about her debutalbum 'Zing shtil/ yiddish songs':
- The repertoire is of a very good level, especially when one considers that this is a debut album.
-Lucette van den Berg gives these songs a rendition full of respect for the texts, dreamy and skilfull.
- It makes every song, not into an art song, but a precious jewel to listen to at one's leisture. (New Jewish weekly)

- It's no ordinairy performance when a singer is able to surprise us with a selection of Yiddish songs. Soprano singer Lucette van den Berg proves that by using good taste, having a splendid voice and picking up a choice orchestra a cd can be made that does, in fact, ad something substantional to what is allready there.

It's a dream debut!
It's no ordinary performance when a singer is able to surprise us with a collection of Yiddish songs. Singer Lucette van den Berg proves that by using good taste, having a splendid voice and picking a choice orchestra a cd can be made that does, in fact, add something substantial to what is already there. It's a good thing that her repertoire deviates from the usual, and that she choose songs carrying a consistent atmosphere, songs that fit her voice perfectly. The subdued accompaniments are a testimony of her feeling and class. When you hear 'Du shaynst vi di zun' or the intense ' Mayn rue-plats' you will be convinced as well. It's a dream debut!
