About This Performance

Winner of the 2012 Richard Tucker Career Grant, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano is recognized for her naturally lustrous sound and fresh, appealing stage presence. Her voice is a voluminous one that’s characterized by “remarkable agility in her higher range and a molten contralto lower down, gliding between these registers with seeming ease” (Washington Post). Widely fêted for her work at the Met—particularly in Robert LePage’s Ring cycle—Cano is joined by a trio of MET luminaries—orchestra principals Nathan Hughes and Rafael Figueroa, and pianist Ken Noda, musical assistant to James Levine—for an intimate recital of vocal and instrumental chamber music.
