Jennifer Lane, Mezzo Soprano

Jennifer Lane, Mezzo Soprano

American Bach Soloists: Messiah. Jennifer Lane, left, Arianna Zukerman, soprano, and Wesley Rogers, tenor.

 

Where some historically informed performances have a soprano and male alto, Clarke's had a soprano and mezzo-soprano. The singers made his choice convincing . . . Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane's dusky timbre persuasively shaded her darker solos, underlining their anticipation of late Mozart. Duets had ardor, warmth of rapport and a blending of timbres that sustained long phrases with discreet expression.
