FLUTIST //

 

“surpassingly beautiful contributions” – The Boston Globe

 

“freedom, theatricality and interaction that sounded perfectly right” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

“a stunning virtuosic display” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

“dynamic performances” – The Boston Globe

 

“…clarity and intent that can only be achieved by [a performer] unflinchingly comfortable with contemporary music.” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

 “Almost everyone got some solos, but the flute received the most memorable of the lot, and they were played with great tonal beauty.” – The Arts Fuse

 

“Boldin, in response, delivered her angular runs with palpable energy and velvety tone.” – Boston Classical Review

 

“Deborah Boldin, especially, gave a truly bravura performance, deftly navigating the challenges inherent in performing a violin part on flute, and doing so with style and grace.” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

“Before the musicians aired the Sonata, Boldin offered Debussy’s Syrinx as an introduction. Her multi-colored tone contrasted velvety sounds with more hollow ones, giving the meandering line added weight.”
– Boston Classical Review

 

“incredible musicality and technical mastery”
– The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

“Phipps has a strong sense of color, and the players exploited the writing to the fullest: Boldin in particular coaxed a world of color from her flute and piccolo.”
– The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

“Deborah Boldin’s flute worked its own splendid enchantment.” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

“discerning ears and cosmopolitan tastes” – The Boston Globe

“During intermission, concertgoers could be heard marveling at the program's breadth... Chameleon makes daring seem easy.” – The Boston Globe

 

“Boldin is continually looking for big but little-known works - new, recent, and old - and putting them together in intriguing, organic combinations. The cross-references are not just intellectual; you can feel them in your body.”
– The Boston Globe

 

“Creative, thought-provoking, and highly entertaining programming.” – The Boston Musical Intelligencer

 

“Artistic Director Deborah Boldin has consistently devised clever programs combining pieces new and old that speak to each other in thought-provoking ways.” – The Arts Fuse
