Just Arrived! Peter offers 13 New Solos from his new Solos for Sunday Morning Song Bundle!

Says Peter, ”I have truly loved working on this book of solos. About a year ago I made the decision to dedicate a major portion of my life to the study of spirituality through the Bible. And what better way of doing this than through music. The work has been buoyant, challenging and totally fulfilling.”

Quotes

Peter Link's score is brave, courageous, and bold with beautiful ballads to boot

Peter Filichia, Newark Star-Ledger & TheaterMania

Written by composer Peter Link (King of Hearts, Salvation) and lyricist Larry Rosler (who, with Joe Bravaco, also wrote the book), the show is more tuneful and emotionally resonant than many shows to hit the Great White Way in recent memory.

By Jonathan Frank, Sound Advice @Talkingbroadway.com

Peter Link has written a score that mixes to beautiful effect country-western strains with a pop sensibility and even soaring melodic lines reminiscent of opera. What listeners will comment on is the richness and effectiveness of the score...

By Andy Propst, Americantheatreweb.com

What the score does offer is a wonderful mix of a country feeling, beautiful ballads, soaring melodies, clever lyrics, a true western atmosphere, and haunting orchestral pieces. The score is very strong and has all the elements a good musical needs, which include a compelling story and a mix of good songs.

Amy Somensky, Monsters and Critics.com

The Jenny Burton Experience is actually singer Jenny Burton and a nine-person choir in a show composed and directed by Broadway songwriter Peter Link. And what an experience it is!

Roy Sander, New York City - citysearch.com

Composer/director/record producer Peter Link is nothing short of genius, and Burton and her group execute his brilliance flawlessly.

Laurie Lawson -- Electronic Journey

Singing the songs of Peter Link, Burton offers spine-tingling renditions of rousing gospel/rock anthems that are magnificent in scope and structure.

John Hoglund, New York Native

Burton is indeed a musical wonder, with a voice that soars, and could probably knock down power lines... Her choir is another very good reason to catch this show. For me, though, the real star here is Link's ambitious, slam-dunk score...

Bill Ervolino, The Record

The sheer range of style and excellency of every number demonstrated talents and skills placing Link among our foremost musical craftsmen. By evening's end any spirit that hasn't been uplifted should be checked for consciousness.

Carolyn Rollin Albert, Singles Almanac

Alvin Klein, critic of the New York Times, said of the Goodspeed Opera House production, “King of Hearts is about the need for love, frivolity and grandeur. Simplicity and intimacy are recaptured with affection, authenticity and focus. The musical is pure romantic escape – into fantasy and into the fantastic…a celebratory rite of love’s redemptive power. Mr. Link’s music is a fusion of classical chorales, down-home American country style, French music hall and Viennese waltzes… Whatever may sound derivative dissolves into the ephemera of real charm and enchantment. It is absolutely worth investigating.“

Alvin Klein, New York Timescomp
