McGegan, Moore, Panthaki’s recording of “Joseph makes a strong impression”

“Conductor Nicholas McGegan makes the musical points tell precisely and his energy affects the entire performance, carrying it through the slow parts of the piece. Diana Moore is simply perfect, her crystalline diction making it possible to distinguish every word she sings. Nicholas Phan as Simeon and Sherezade Panthaki as Joseph’s wife Asenath are similarly excellent and even recent SF Conservatory of Music graduate Gabrielle Haigh, in the small but crucial role of Benjamin, makes a strong contribution, rounding out a cast without a weak link. The recording, engineered, as usual, by David v.R. Bowles of Swineshead Productions, is clear and well-balanced.”
