Nadine Sierra’s debut album, There’s A Place For Us, reveals the soprano to be an intelligent and exciting artist. Hers is not the most gorgeous voice – it’s always accomplished and rich, though sometimes strident, perhaps even a little blowsy – but in this recital she doesn’t sing a word that she doesn’t mean; she really makes one sit up and listen. Singing in English, Spanish and Portuguese, Sierra covers a wide range, from Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress to Bernstein, from I Dream of Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair to contemporary pieces by Theofanidis and Golijov. It is a cleverly balanced programme offering many delights, and is presented with confidence and some bravura.
