"Now the auditorium lights are darkened and on stage tenor Vale Rideout is seated holding a text and with a glass of spirits on his table. Mr. Rideout’s voice and nine instruments of the New Orchestra of Washington, conducted superbly by Dr. Hernandaez-Valdez, burst forth in the songs of the 'Dichterliebe' cycle. While Mr. Rideout’s outstanding performance is a largely traditional lyrical rendering of the Schumann/Heine songs, it often cuts through a swath of ensemble dissonance. This effective combination or rather contrast successfully expresses the ironic, contrasting style and intent of the poet Heine in his original 'Das Buch der Lieder.'"
