Barbara Lowin Offers “Everything I Love”
is everywhere as Barbara Lowin premieres her new show, “Everything
I Love,” an evening of continental cabaret, at Danny’s Skylight
Room Cabaret. Featuring music director Christopher Marlowe
on piano, and directed by Scott Barnes, “Everything I Love,” is
subtitled Songs from Near and Far Away.
I Love” Lowin visits a time of enchantment in pre-war Eastern
Europe, journeying to the present with many a romantic stop
along the way. Singing in German, French, Russian and English,
Lowin’s mastery of the languages is superb. Lowin returns to
the well of romance to sample both its sweet pleasures (“Im
chambre séparée” from a Richard Heuberger operetta, adapted
by Marlowe with English lyrics by Lowin), as well as its darker
brews (Piaf & Monnot’s heart-wrenching “Hymne à l’amour”).
Whether studying the art of seduction (John Wallowitch’s tasty “Luncheon
in München”) or feeling its bittersweet pain (Fritz Kreisler’s “Liebesleid” adapted
by Marlowe and Lowin), love is her compass all along the way.
into a Ukrainian-Russian musical family in Toronto (her mother
was a successful singer on TV and radio, her father a bandleader
who also managed and later married Gisele MacKenzie), Lowin
was first a child star on Canadian television and then a successful
opera singer specializing in classic lyric roles. An original
member of the famed master classes of Maria Callas at Juilliard
in 1971, Lowin pursued an 18-year career in opera and concerts
during which she performed with the New York City Opera, the
Santa Fe Opera, the Canadian Opera Company, the Welsh National
Opera, and with leading orchestras such as The New York Philharmonic
under Pierre Boulez and The St. Louis Symphony under Leonard
most recent album, recorded with pianist Paul Greenwood for
Frosia Records, is “As Long As There’s Music.”#
