REVIEWS

"Composed in memory of Music in the Loft's Founder /Director, Fredda Hyman ... Grier wanted to create a work that would, in her words, "capture Fredda's spirit, strength, delicacy and charm." It's not hard to hear those qualities in this wistfully lyrical piece, which had CSO principal flutist Mathieu Dufour and violist Roger Chase soaring and intertwining over the broken chords of harpist Nuiko Wadden's accompaniment. A fragment of "Juliet's Death," from Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet," turns up about midway through the 13-minute work – a reference to the dedicatee's years as a dancer....a touching tribute."
