Schumann’s rapturous Op. 39 Liederkreis, an exotic song cycle by Debussy, a new work by Huw Watkins commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and more are showcased by soprano Ruby Hughes. “Hughes’s voice is ravishing, her interpretations wonderfully fresh,” wrote Gramophone. She is joined by Julius Drake, one of the great collaborative pianists, for a fascinating recital.
