HERE/AFTER — Camille Claudel: Into the Fire — Joyce DiDonato and the Alexander String QuartetAudiophile Audition has a five-star review for Jake Heggie and Gene Sheer’s new here/after recording featuring the Camille Claudel: Into the Fire song cycle.

“Finally, the first piece on the recording and certainly to my mind the greatest, is ‘Camille Claudel: Into the Fire.’ … The piece is riveting from start to finish, composed for the 30th anniversary of the Alexander String Quartet, and for Joyce DiDonato, whose singing is simply ravishing, some of the best I have ever heard from her vast recorded legacy. The music for the quartet has flavors of Debussy’s own work for that medium, and the rhythmic elements and hearty tonal melodic contours make for an enthralling experience that must be heard.” —Steven Ritter, Audiophile Audition
