John Musto and Amy Burton Make a Life Together in Music
Barry Jagoda - August 10, 2018
Introduced to festival audiences, on this evening of wonderful nostalgia, was a New York-based amazing soprano, Amy Burton, whose renditions accompanied by veteran pianists John Musto and Michael Boriskin, were compelling, entertaining and at the highest level of cabaret performance.
Burton stole the show and gave delight after delight in her presentations of Bernstein at work and play.

Soprano Amy Burton, ably accompanied by Trio Solisti, sings them with lovely tone and a disarming naturalness.

Reviews of Souvenir de Printemps (Harbinger 2005)
Un disque beau, un disque rare. Amy Burton, américaine cantratrice… a osé cet hommage a Yvonne Printemps et a enregistré la majorité de ses succes. Le résultat est magnifique, pour ne pas dire enthousiasmant. Comme il y a d'esprit là-dedans - de cet esprit français tout dédié à la chose sans jamais prononcer le mot! Délicieuse curiosité..
A beautiful recording, a rare recording. Amy Burton, an American singer… has dared this homage to Yvonne Printemps and has recorded the majority of her great successes. The result is magnificent, not to say enthusiastic. How much spirit is in there – that French spirit completely devoted to one thing without ever saying it directly! A delicious curiosity

Superb Soprano, Riveting Conductor
If we’re lucky, we’ll get to hear it again with Amy Burton and festival Music Director Marin Alsop, who gave the cycle a splendid performance. Burton truly embodied the music and the poetry, from the wails of “Master of War” to the simplicity of “Forever Young,” singing with fine tone, diction, and deep involvement, and coping well with the careful, and composer-approved, amplification necessitated by the poor acoustics of the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium.
