  • Summary

  • Lucy Fitz Gibbon wears many hats: she's a soprano whose repertoire spans from the Renaissance to the present day, she teaches at Cornell and Bard, and she has been known to dig around in libraries for a manuscript or two 🤓

    Naturally then, the reach of this conversation is far and wide, from Lucy's musical upbringing playing violin and watching operas, to her grounding Feldeinsamkeit walks at Marlboro Music Festival. She also gushes over Schubert's long-form songs for 10+ minutes...and that's AFTER the edit, mind you. But I am all about it, because what comes through in this episode is Lucy's eloquent passion and commitment to amplifying the multiplicity of voices, past and present, that are "integral to classical music's future," and I could not agree more. Have a listen; this conversation is an inspiration and a meditation all wrapped in one.

    Music:
