  • This 2003 Grammy winner for Best Chamber Music Performance, written in 1926 by Austrian Alban Berg, chronicles the married composer’s brief, secret love affair. The Kronos performance, featuring soprano Dawn Upshaw, restores a long-lost vocal portion to the piece.

  • For the first time on record, Upshaw interprets the work of Baroque masters J.S. Bach and Henry Purcell. Her performance, says Fortune, "is so fluid, strong, and serene that it acts upon a cluttered cortex like deep-tissue shiatsu."

  • The soprano mines the catalogue of Broadway/classical composer Vernon Duke, reviving overlooked works and performing beloved numbers like "Autumn in New York."  The Chicago Sun-Times decided, "No one of her generation handles the Great American Songbook with Upshaw's care."

  • Upshaw presents a program of 20th-century American operatic arias as impressively wide-ranging in its emotional content as in its repertoire choices. The New York Times declared, "The singer's personal magnetism combines with the material to form an irresistible mixture."

  • Upshaw explores the legacy of Broadway's storied composer team; guests include Audra McDonald and Fred Hersch. The Independent (UK) says “it's invariably charming and stylish, and when she sings about turning Manhattan into 'an isle of joy' it's surprisingly touching.”

  • Soprano Upshaw is joined by guitarists Sérgio and Odair Assad on this beguiling set of songs addressing the themes of night, sleep, and dreams and including pieces by composers ranging from Handel to George Crumb. The Washington Post calls it "imaginatively conceived and flawlessly executed."

  • Upshaw performs lesser-known Broadway repertoire from Leonard Bernstein, Marc Blitzstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Kurt Weill, plus classics like “I Feel Pretty.” Time declared, “Few opera singers have ever seemed so convincing—and comfortable—in the Broadway idiom.”

  • Soprano Upshaw and pianist Richard Goode perform songs built on texts by German poet Goethe. The Washington Post praised “the inclusion of both Schubert's and Schumann's settings of the exquisite Wandrers Nachtlied and the heartfelt interpretation of Mozart's Das Veitchen."

  • One of the most affecting works of the late 20th century, Symphony No. 3, featuring the London Sinfonetta and soprano Dawn Upshaw, proved spellbinding to a diverse international audience. TIME calls it “a transcendental meditation on mortality and redemption.”
