Press Quotes

  • ""...a fluid affair, like watching a beguiling calligraphy unfold in human limbs across the stage. It was done with springy, delicate perfection - and the MMDG Music Ensemble handled the two Brahms song-cycle scores just as finely.""
    Seattle Times
  • ""When four fine singers and two pianists pour out Brahms's Liebesliederwaltzer and Morris's wonderful dancers swoop through his Love Song Waltzes, we're surrounded by visions of a musical world, and about as near to heaven as we can get.""
