American composer Juliana Hall is well known for her gorgeous and meticulously-crafted art songs, which have been described as "beguiling" (Times of London), "beautiful in ways both traditional and strikingly original" (Austin Chronicle), and "the most genuinely moving music of the afternoon" (Boston Globe). Singers and audiences alike take delight in her songs, whose brilliant tonal, textural, and rhythmic language makes her work immediately recognizable and wonderfully familiar, and show her to be "a composer who savors lyrical lines and harmonies peppered with gentle spices" (Gramophone Magazine). Meet the composer at this live performance, and find out why the art songs of Juliana Hall are "positively magical."
