REVIEW: Seven Responses

The Review

The Philadelphia Inquirer review was a comparison of how the different performance spaces (Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral vs. Merkin Concert Hall) affected how the works were heard. Ms. Montalbano is mentioned briefly (using her married name, Brehm) for the solo she sang in Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s response, “Ad Genua.”

I was moved by the austere beauty of [Ms. Montalbano’s] alto solo in the Thorvaldsdottir.

The Seven Responses project by The Crossing was performed as a part of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival 2016.
