In this episode, I speak with Julie Comparini, who performed the world premiere recording of René Leibowitz's Explanation of Metaphors. The story of her career and how she found herself in Bremen, Germany, performing music that spans centuries of history in various languages, is a fascinating one. What's it like to sing in a language you don't speak? Or a language that no one speaks (anymore) (or ever did)? I speak with Julie about this, her wonderful journey to where she is now, both geographically and professionally, as well as what she's been up to lately, and you should take a listen to it.
