“LARK Quartet in their prime at Thirty” + “Andrew Waggoner’s brilliant octet is sure to enter the classical repertoire”

The Millbrook Independent reviewed the LARK Quartet’s 30 year celebration concert at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall. It was a wonderful evening of new music, old music, current and past members!
Here’s a snippet:

“This was fresh, dynamic, and so lively I was transfixed by each note. Amid the back-and-forth argument, the two violas joined in a gritty, mutual showdown. Violas rarely receive such spotlight treatment.  A modified truce agreement greeted the Finale, yet one knew that the modernists had really won because their music was so much more interesting and, yes, exciting. Waggoner’s brilliant octet is sure to enter the classical repertoire.” -Kevin T. McEneaney, full review here.
