One more great review of the Barber concert

Lewis Whittington reviewed the Biography in Music ~ Samuel Barber concert in Some morsels:

Lyric fest’s soloists — William Stone, Emily Bullock, Randi Marrazzo, Michelle Johnson and Suzanne DuPlantis — offered interpretive readings of Barber’s bold relationship with voice and text. … and the singers made this more than an academic appreciation of Barber. Just as transporting was Laura Ward’s undecorated, fully voiced piano accompaniment.

The program was book-ended by a fine choral group The Crossing, led by director Donald Nally, which had such warmth and precision in their selections …

The whole thing is an excellent read.
