PORTRAIT paints a picture of Maghan McPhee's musical identity. It encompasses a variety of styles from classical to contemporary. Feeling at home in many styles of classical music she is primarily driven by texts that resonate with her. For her first CD, she chose to highlight a variety of art song treasures from Mozart's lieder collection, to Gian Carlo Menotti's very personal Five Songs, with texts written by Menotti himself. Other gems include rarely performed melodies by Jules Massenet and Ravel's famous Cinq chansons populaires grecque.
