Writing about soprano Abigail Fischer in the New York Times, Zachary Woolfe notes: With her dramatic tumble of red hair and cello-mello voice, Ms. Fischer sings with a passionate restraint that has no equal in her generation. You didn't want her to stop. She is joined by Susan Ellinger, a pianist praised for her “refined, poised and singular vision”, who has performed as both a soloist and chamber musician in concerts at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Bruno Walter Auditorium, Caramoor and Tanglewood. The program includes a selection of Brahms late piano works, amidst the luxurious expressionism of Berg's 7 early songs. A Downtown Music debut.
This concert has been made possible, in part, with the generous support of White Plains Hospital. A member of the Montefiore Health System, White Plains Hospital is the hub of advanced care in the Hudson Valley region.

A WQXR Encore at Grace - Harmonica virtuoso Robert Bonfiglio has shown the world what power there is in this little instrument, what possibilities there are for an almost infinite range of expressivity from a range of only about four octaves. Heralded by the Los Angeles Times as “the Paganini of the harmonica” he has soloed with over 200 Orchestras including the Minnesota Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony, and the Boston Pops. Prompted by Bob Sherman, Mr. Bonfiglio will demonstrate various harmonica styles and techniques then bring a sparkling variety of short pieces to this special concert. A short audience Q and A session follows the program. A Downtown Music debut.
