January 2016 Performance Review by ArtsFuse

arts-fuse-header-for-web-site-01The January 10  BAE concert of string quartets by Bartók and Ravel drew praise from David Janssen from Boston’s ArtsFuse. Noting that the BAE “is serving up world class performances of chamber music” and delivered a performance “full of bravado, virtuosity, subtlety, and charm”, the review went on to express appreciation for the musician’s virtuosity and presentation of the pieces. “As gorgeous as the work may be, it is no less technically demanding than the Bartók. The virtuosity of the performers turned sounding beautiful into an easy task…The performers provided seamless intonation throughout the work; their detailing was particularly impressive during very bare spots in the third movement.” The full review can be read here on the ArtsFuse website.
