A Love Letter to Liverpool
Jennifer Johnston, Voice - Mezzo Soprano

RCD 1044
September 2019

Liverpool is a city with a fiercely independent spirit and a rich and dramatic cultural history matching its turbulent development. The past 30 years have witnessed Liverpool’s renaissance, and, thanks to pure Scouse grit, it has reinvented itself as a city of innovation and entrepreneurialism and seen staggering levels of regeneration. Jennifer Johnstone’s new album is an affectionate celebration to her native city.

One of the world’s most sought after and in demand mezzo sopranos, Jennifer’s career takes her to the world’s greatest opera houses working with some of the greatest conductors and singers or our time. Her new album is a deeply personal and affectional musical love-letter to her native Liverpool. Johnstone: I have sung across the globe and experienced many wonderful places, yet I love nowhere more than Liverpool: the gateway to the Atlantic, my native land, my beloved city, my home.
