Martinu’s The Epic of Gilgamesh with the Grant Park Music Festival

“Angela Meade’s plush dramatic soprano was made to order for the courtesan’s seductive solo”

Chicago Tribune – John von Rhein

“The four excellent soloists gave intensely affecting performances: the luminous soprano Angela Meade in the double role of the courtesan who seduces Enkidu and the goddess of love, Ishtar, whom Gilgamesh rejects, thus offending the gods who demand Enkidu’s death in revenge.”
