Before a Nourse Auditorium audience that whooped and applauded on
Saturday night
as though she could do no wrong, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe dedicated
her take-no-prisoners voice to a winning program of French song and
American popular classics from the 20th century. Partnered by pianist
Warren Jones, who did far more than accompany beautifully, Blythe wowed her
audience with her enormous instrument, engaging repartee, and delightful
shtick. If, in the end, her American Songbook renditions failed to efface
memories of her great predecessors, they were nonetheless delivered with a
sincerity, power, and love of music and language that proved downright
infectious. <snip>
