Hila Plitmann

Grammy Award-Winning Soprano

Hila Plitmann is a composer's dream. Throughout her enormous range, her singing is precise, expressive and lit with intelligence.

Classical Source Review – December 2013

Having given the world premiere less than 24 hours previously, the required narrator, singers and players returned for a second outing of David Del Tredici’s Dum Dee Tweedle. Under master of ceremonies Leonard Slatkin’s committed and galvanising direction, this was quite something.

Where to begin with Dum Dee Tweedle? Well, you can’t, save that Alexandra Silber opened proceedings and was a charismatic and unstinting narrator from her first word, with a range of voices and no little involvement; and the singers, Hila Plitman without a score, rose to the occasion with characterful contributions as well as hand and facial gestures…I therefore enjoyed Dum Dee Tweedle as an 80-minute (to the second) aural extravaganza of irresistible energy, amazing orchestration (I loved the ‘big band’ brass) and a stylistic diversity that suggested we have been here before, yet it all seemed completely new. Alice would no doubt have been curious about this.
