Review - "That's what happens when you give it your all."

Full Review: https://www.classical-scene.com/2017/09/17/albright-chopin-gardner/


Thank you to the Boston Musical Intelligencer for a wonderful review of my first concert of my new series at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston!

Excerpts:

"Charlie Albright brought an inspired approach, holding nothing back in a masterful display of musicality. His extraordinary technique always foregrounded both expressiveness and structure."
"Striking rendering."
"Characteristic of Albright’s approach was an arch-like shaping of long phrases, entering softly gently, building toward a peak, before returning altered from the traversal."
"Breath-taking intimacy, as though wooing an absent beloved."
"The study in thirds, No. 6 in G-sharp Minor, painted a gorgeous impressionist canvas with shimmering pastels and flashes of light."
"Crested a tidal wave of ineffable and unstoppable emotion."
"A sublime and unbridled threat of cosmic forces."
"The Etude in C Minor received a Byronic grandeur and subjectivity; its sublime cosmic scale engulfed worlds and difficulties into seamless and fractious beauty."
"Albright gave us a taste of the next Gardner concert with a brief improvisation, a moody, flowing late-Romantic piece evocative of Rachmaninoff but expressive of a distinctly modern and utterly authentic content."
