“Ravel’s Sheherazade, sung by angel-voiced soprano Michelle Areyzaga . . . The soprano for this concert was the lovely favorite Areyzaga, and the intricate weave of words and music fit her glowing voice like a Chanel gown. She is a warm, elegant singer and even at her most powerful moments she maintains a refinement and grace that adds luster to the music. In these songs, her voice just floated out, clear and easy, shimmering through a poem about the mysteries of Asia, the joy of anticipated love, and a verse about the intense impact a stranger can make upon the heart of another.”
