Let Beauty Awake

Winner of the 2006 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and the Verbier Festival Academy's 2008 Prix d'Honneur, Joshua Hopkins has been hailed as "…an outstanding young baritone with a virile, vigorous yet velvety sound and an immediately evident dramatic authority." Mr. Hopkins has signed an exclusive recording contract with ATMA Classique and his first solo recital recording on the label includes English language songs by Vaughan Williams, Glick, Bowles and Barber.

This vocal recital features four contrasting and highly individual twentieth-century song cycles. Though apparently unconnected, Vaughan-Williams’ landmark Songs of Travel, Srul Irving Glick’s South of North - Images of Canada, Paul Bowles’ Blue Mountain Ballads, and Samuel Barber’s Three Songs, Opus 45 are united by the English language and by a strong sense of place - more specifically, by the underlying presence of nature.
