Recital

Julia Bullock, classical singer
Laura Poe, piano

Cal Performances audiences know the superb, daring soprano Julia Bullock well, from her 2018 Hertz Hall recital, and before that, in her star turns as both Josephine Baker and French mystic and activist Simone Weil at the 2016 Ojai at Berkeley festival. Just before last spring’s lockdown, Bullock visited the Bay Area to sing with the San Francisco Symphony, where the San Francisco Chronicle praised the dramatic power and clarity of her interpretations, and her “ability to plunge unnervingly deep into this music and then surface, like some kind of musical pearl diver, with great glistening strands of expressive jewels… there was a vivid, edge-of-the-seat propulsiveness to even the most rhapsodic songs that lent them an air of vibrancy and danger.” Recording her recital in Bleibach, Germany, Bullock presents one of her characteristically diverse and thoughtfully curated programs.

Major support provided by The Bernard Osher Foundation.
