This week I am finishing and mastering  the long awaited recording with soprano Cora Burggraaf featuring her most favorite Folk Songs.... A colorful combination of styles and countries of origin make this a great record! Cora proves to be a true chameleon when it comes to languages (German, English, Finnish, Hungarian, Italian &... Rotterdams!) and styles to fit the different songs. From lyrical and dramatic to funny and even corny...all is available on vocal her pallette.

Songs by Beethoven, Britten, Mahler, Respighi, Sibelius a.o.
