Brahms concert review by Michael Caruso


Michael Caruso published a great review of our Brahms concert in the Chestnut Hill Local. We’d love for you to read the whole review. To whet your appetite, here are some small tastes:

… presented a moving portrait of one of classical music’s most perplexing personalities through a deft combination of narration and music.

Lyric Fest’s Friday evening program strove successfully to open a window onto Brahms’ personality … the ensemble made its way through a wisely chosen selection of Brahms’ lieder.

Laura Ward was the star of the evening … Ward offered a tonal spectrum that was both profound in its fullness and shimmering in its transparency.
