Danielle de Niese Review

Posted by: sjacobsohn

"The combination of glamor and charm that is so much a part of soprano Danielle de Niese makes for quite a beguiling force. It was on full display Sunday evening in a recital presented by the Shriver Hall Concert Series."

Belcea Quartet Review

Posted by: sjacobsohn

"This ensemble from England has developed exceptional cohesiveness in terms of artistic temperament and technique. The players have a way of making music sound freshly composed, even as they make clear just how long and intimately they have lived with every note."

Colorful recital by trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth

Posted by: sjacobsohn

"Trumpet recitals are among the rarest of events in the classical music realm. It's just a guess on my part, but I imagine that recitals by female trumpeters have tended to be ever so slightly rarer. Which is to say that Sunday evening's appearance by Tine Thing Helseth for the Shriver Hall Concert Series was extra cool.

The Oslo-born trumpeter, joined by an exceptional pianist, Bretton Brown, brought with her a vivid program. There aren't a ton of works originally composed for trumpet and piano. Some of the best were on the bill."

Scharoun Ensemble Berlin Review

Posted by: sjacobsohn

"Baltimore has experienced a bounty of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, among others, in recent days.

My favorite experience came Sunday evening when Shriver Hall Concert Series presented the Scharoun Ensemble Berlin, a chamber group comprising (mostly) of members of the famed Berlin Philharmonic. It's always uplifting to be in the presence of musicians who are at the top of their game."
