We told you this was coming, but it's nice to know it will be here so soon... On Dec. 19, Nonesuch Records will release the recording of Peter Liebersonís "Neruda Songs" performed by his late wife, Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Music Director James Levine.

This is no small deal, as it marks both the start of the BSO's experimental CD release program under Levine and the recording of an important work at Symphony Hall.

In a press release sent out by the BSO, we're provided with the following comment from Peter Lieberson:

"The fifth poem, 'My love, if I die and you don't,' is very sad and peaceful at the same time. There is the recognition that no matter how blessed one is with love, there will still be a time when we must part from those whom we cherish so much. I am so grateful for Nerudaís beautiful poetry, for although these poems were written to another, when I set them I was speaking directly to my own beloved, Lorraine."
