CD REVIEW: "This CD is never boring... each track brings a new and different musical experience..."
"Over a year ago, when I first learned that the three Midwest young singers, Agne G., Anastasia Lee, and Tatiana Marie, were embarking on a joint effort to produce a CD as the “Tre Principesse” , I was more than skeptical. I couldn’t see how three distinctively different voices and genres could be successful on a single album. After all, there was Tatiana with a light almost innocent classical country/western voice, Anastasia with a powerful contralto voice, and Agne’s classically-trained soprano voice. How could this all blend on one CD? I had to wait over a year to find out that my skepticism was totally ill-founded.
After listening to “Getting to Know You” for the first time, I was immediately struck by how masterfully this album was produced. It was almost like weaving different colors and themes into a tapestry masterpiece. From the first song, “Always On My Mind,” to the powerful conclusion of the Broadway Medley, each song contributed to a masterpiece defining the term classical /crossover with a touch of classic country. Each song was chosen to feature and highlight the performer’s unique voice. The solos were interspersed with magnificent duets showcasing blend and harmony of their voices. This musical experience flows like a gentle but powerful river which brings a new and delightful experience around each bend.
I found that this CD is never boring for each track brings with it a new and different musical experience which features the distinctively different voices of these extremely talented young people. The production features the beauty of their voices and was never overwhelmed by the appropriate and well orchestrated accompaniment.
“Getting To Know You” is for anyone who wishes to experience a masterpiece of musical tapestry. In the first week of sales the girl's album hit #2 on Billboard's Classical Chart, a well deserved ranking."
