Soprano leaves Marc at National Gallery 

My first review for the Washington Post of Alessandra Marc's Sunday concert can be read if you follow this link. Mind you that the last sentence has been made nonsense off: It isn't the case that if Alessandra Marc had used her voice to greater effect that she could have sung Julie Andrews off a cliff (not a good thing, in my mind) - it is because she used her voice to great effect (but not with great taste) that she could have done that. Or, in other words: She was too damn loud in belching these songs out. And she killed that Puccini.

Unfortunately she has - to my knowledge - not recorded the Berg... but there are good versions out there I urge you to listen to.
