Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
"Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton's sumptuous timbre and nuanced phrasing proved impressive in the fourth movement's "Midnight Song." She and the combined Peabody Children's Chorus and women of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society produced a beguiling effect in the symphony's penultimate section."
–Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun
"Alsop also chose wisely in mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, who pleaded mournfully, in Nietzsche’s words heard at midnight by Zarathustra, but also had the clarion power to soar above the massive choral and instrumental forces in the fifth movement."
–Charles T. Downey, The Washington Post
