"Aboundingly earthy, rhythmic and embellished by deeply moving nostalgia, [Scourge of Hyacinths]  stands at the crossroads of every musical emotion. The constant pulsation and incessant murmur that seethes under the pure lines of song weave these different genres into magnificent bouquets.... The direction by Robert Wilson creates a distance which, far from chilling the intention, makes it incandescent."
Tribune de Genève

 

"...Tania León's song cycle, Singin' Sepia, one of this composer's most dramatic and beautifully orchestrated works."
— Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

"Tania León's score...features a spookily strange chorus and intriguing orchestration, creating a richly ritualistic mood."
— Claudio La Rocco, The New York Times

"León's piece evolved organically and in unexpected ways...
The resulting work is a haunting mosaic."
— Mark Eden Horowitz, The Sondheim Review
