Please tell Ms. Upshaw how much I loved her singing in the Gorecki 3rd Symphony. I heard it going home after seeing my patients one evening on WNYC years ago. It was one of the most difficult pieces to hear -- it was such a profound lament-- but her voice was so embracing and powerful that I had to run out to find the piece.
