Quotes from the upcoming August 2011 Journal of Synagogue Music review Gilgl fun a nign - Cantor Arianne Brown's CD - Eternal Flame: A Yiddish Love Story, a review/essay by Rabbi Gershon Freidlin
"The recording under discussion here - a sampler of Yiddish theater love songs from the romantic to the nostalgic for home and mother - shows a voice that sounds so authentic for Yiddish theater that, were I the impresario Boris Tomashevsky (19th-century Khazn Nisse Belzer's onetime boy soprano), I'd cast her, sight unseen, in Yiddish musicals."
"Not only is Arianne Brown's vocal timbre authentic for Yiddish musical theater of a few generations ago, it is also better trained than were the voices of the stars there. No screeching or tremolos. The voice goes to the ranges the singer wants it to; her cantorial coloratura - in a brief but forceful passage - flows easily, leaving no doubt that at least some females do more than give credit to what had been male repertoire."
"Khazn Arianne Brown has a voice with k'fitses haderekh - it flies on air: wherever she sends it, it goes. She is one to tastefully tackle musical migrations across languages, eras, and cultures. On Eternal Flame we hear that voice."
