“Danielle Talamantes belongs to a new generation of American singers characterized by solid training and impressively commanding technique…”

“…so feelingly do Talamantes and Dehlinger bring the songs to life.”

Canciones Españolas
Metropolitan Opera soprano Danielle Talamantes and classical pianist Henry Dehlinger perform a concert of gorgeous Spanish songs by three of Spain’s greatest composers – Enrique Granados, Manuel de Falla, and Joaquín Turina.

The program is featured on their critically acclaimed album – Canciones españolas – which was released by MSR Classics and produced by Richard Price, renowned for his Grammy Award-winning work in classical music recording.

“Talamantes has the perfect voice for this recital – intelligent, well-modulated, and sensitive to all the emotions in a program of highly nuanced songs by three of Spain’s greatest composers.”

Heaven and Earth
Danielle Talamantes and Henry Dehlinger present Heaven and Earth: A Duke Ellington Songbook in recital.  A luscious collection of brand new arrangements of Duke Ellington standards and irreplaceable gems of the American Songbook – written especially for Ms. Talamantes.  The program is featured on their newly released album Heaven and Earth.

“Talamantes is simply brilliant in this music, giving it a knock-your-socks-off performance that leaves you hankering for much, much more.”
