About


PHILLIPS, NEUBAUER, MCDERMOTT TRIO

Soprano Susanna Phillips defies convention with enchanting program of songs with viola.
— Plain Dealer

Historic recordings of some of the great singers of yesteryear featured numerous performances of salon type songs that included an obbligato instrument. Some of these pairings included Enrico Caruso with Mischa Elman, John McCormack with Fritz Kreisler, Marian Anderson with William Primrose, Alma Gluck with her husband Efrem Zimbalist, as well as Bing Crosby and Jascha Heifetz! It is repertoire of great charm, featuring arching melodies, emotional harmonies, and simple textures.
