Sound bites

WashingtonClassicalReview, 01.12.18, Charles T Downey

“….But it was in the French music that Keenlyside most excelled. A creature of the stage, he responded to their often rambling narratives and musical volatility with manic energy….”

MDTheatreGuide, 03.12.18, Erin Ridge

“…..This recital was, without a doubt, the most thrilling, moving, and inspired art song recital DC has seen in some time. The talents of Keenlyside and Martineau as seasoned performers brought an entirely new level of perception to these classic songs that touched the heart and mind with lasting effect and solidified the importance of continuing the tradition to perform and appreciate art song…..”
