At at 11:30 we talk with Elizabeth S. Lane Director & Founder of Kansas City’s critically-acclaimed chamber music ensemble Bach Aria Soloists about their new recording Le Dolce Sirene. The new record features Elizabeth S. Lane, GRAMMY soprano Sarah Tannehill Anderson, Elisa Williams Bickers who plays Harpsichord, Organ and Piano and cellist Hannah Collins. Elizabeth S. Lane calls their new recording, “a quintessential representation ofour Baroque and contemporary chamber music performance. Much of it highlights our soprano Sarah Tannehill Anderson, but because of the exposed, soloistic compositional virtuosity of Bach and Handel, and the BAS treatment that we utilize for this music that begs for improvisation, it also exposes the versatility of virtuosity of all of our Soloists.” Le Dolce Sirene will be released in a special celebration titled: Record Revelry on Sunday, February 19, 2023 at 6:00 PM, at Thompson Barn, 11184 Lackman Road, Lenexa, KS, 66219.
