Reviewing the San Francisco Symphony Chamber Music Concert, Sunday, January 17, 2010. Music of Debussy, Benjamin, and Britten.
My first review in six months!
A couple of things I didn't say: Davies is too damn big for chamber music, even with a small shell behind the players. And why did it seem that Jonathan Vinocour and Yun Jie Liu put out a larger volume of sound than the string quartet did? Because they were standing and closer to the shell?
