In a departure from my usual repertoire, I'm presenting a program of early keyboard music for virginal and harpsichord this Father's Day, June 19th at Gore Place. I've also added a Groupmuse performance of this program on June 18th at The Berry Salon in Somerville.
Also in June comes a Berry Collective concert that recreates a 19th century London soiree held by the lauded soprano Clara Novello and the virtuoso trumpter Thomas Harper. June 24th at St. James Episcopal Church in Somerville.
Some news: My ensemble The Berry Collective is now able to receive tax-deductible donations through Fractured Atlas! Click here to see the page on their website!
In the news...
"Sylvia Berry's recital opened with the quiet, searching adagio of Mozart's Sonata in E-flat Major, K. 282, a gutsy gambit that revealed a poetic sensibility and a willingness to draw listeners in with spaces to pause and reflect. These qualities contrasted nicely with up-tempo movements, which were handled with verve."

"Special applause for continuo fortepianist Sylvia Berry, [who played] as if she were one of the actors."
— Lloyd Schwartz, Boston Phoenix
