Product Notes

Presently an Associate Professor of Music at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Mary Logan Hastings joined their music faculty with a D.M.A. in Vocal Performance from the University of Maryland, and an extensive professional career in opera which has taken her from America to such European Houses as the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Städtische Bühnen Frankfurt am Main, Staatstheater Stuttgart, Opera Voor Vlaanderen, Théâtre du Capitole, and Théâter Basel. She has regularly performed leading roles such as 'Zerbinetta' in Ariadne auf Naxos, 'Sophie' in Der Rosenkavalier, 'Gilda' in Rigoletto, 'Musetta' in La Bohème, 'Amina' in La Sonnambula, and 'Die Königin der Nacht' in Die Zauberflöte. Dr. Hastings' solo concert work includes appearances with the Berliner Philharmonische under the baton of Christoph von Dohnányi, and performances with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Michael Gielen, Michel Plasson, Daniel Barenboim, Donald Runnicles, and the late Jean Pierre Ponelle and Robert Shaw, among others. Included in her concert repertoire as soprano soloist are The Four Last Songs of Richard Strauss, Rachmaninoff's Vocalise, Brahms' Requiem, Mahler's 8th Symphony, his 4th Symphony, and his Rückert Lieder, Beethoven's 9th Symphony and Haydn's Die Jahreszeiten. In addition to her European career, Dr. Hastings has performed recitals, and given master classes in the theaters and music conservatories of the Peoples Republic of China. She continues to perform, lecture, and adjudicate throughout the United States and Europe. Jan Halmes and Mary have enjoyed a deep musical rapport for more than twenty five years. Jan has been a dedicated accompanist since the age of 12, when she began to discover the possibilities of subtle collaboration in ensemble playing. Since then she has teamed with many singers, instrumentalists and choral groups, touring and performing in the United States, Europe, and China. Jan studied piano performance at the University of Montana with Lucien Hut. Further exploration led Jan to intensive study in German Art song with masters including: Hans Hotter, Elly Ameling, Otto Edelmann and Walter berry.
