“The Nashville Symphony Orchestra immersed itself in the music of Richard Danielpour . . . Its program . . . featured the world premiere of Danielpour’s War Songs, which marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War’s end this year. Also on the bill was Danielpour’s Songs of Solitude, written a decade ago to honor the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Baritone soloist Thomas Hampson performed both of these orchestral song cycles with deep feeling and a welcome degree of high drama.. . . one couldn’t have hoped for a better performance. Much of the vocal writing was scored for the baritone’s highest register, and Hampson sang this music with a vaporous, transparent falsetto.”
