Wynne Delacoma – Chicago Classical Review

“Without undue histrionics, Areyzaga drew us into her songs like a gifted storyteller. In pairs of songs by Duparc and Chausson, she explored various layers of melancholy. A sense of almost angry resignation suffused Chausson’s  Le Temps de Lilas (The Time of Lilacs) while her sorrow was more rapt and ethereal in his Nos souveniers (Our Memories). In six Spanish-flavored songs by Dan Tucker, her long melodies, confident virtuoso flights and sweet, ringing tone stood out clearly against Rizzer’s rhythmically bracingly, brightly dissonant accompaniment.”
