    “What I find most compelling about her is her musical adventurousness, her willingness to voyage across centuries and make the music of different times, cultures, and mindscapes uniquely her own,” Brian Levine says of Cécile McLorin Salvant, his guest on The Gould Standard, a podcast from the Glenn Gould Foundation about the arts, culture, and contemporary society. “Cécile’s questing spirit is fully on display in her newest album, Mélusine, and its predecessor, Ghost Song.” You can watch their conversation—the first of two parts, with the second forthcoming—here.

    “Her music shows off her passion for storytelling and finding the connections between vaudeville, blues, jazz, baroque, and folkloric music. And her latest album, Mélusine, showcases all of that,” Jess Gillam says of Cécile McLorin Salvant, her guest on BBC Radio 3’s This Classical Life. “Her live shows are absolutely electric, full of drama, invention, and commitment to the music.” Salvant shares some of her favorite music—by Puccini, Gabriel Bataille, Camarón de la Isla, and Wanda Jackson—as does Gillam, whose own selections include (past This Classical Life guest) Caroline Shaw’s Plan & Elevation: V. The Beech Tree, from Orange, Shaw’s Grammy-winning album with Attacca Quartet. You can hear the episode here.
