“Berry played with expressive charm . . . responding to lyrical gestures in the strings with elaborate filigree. The large audience responded to the splendid playing during this well-planned, 90-minute travelogue with a long ovation. Many moved on to EDWINS in Shaker Square afterwards to celebrate Les Délices’s tenth anniversary with a benefit evening. Joyeux dixième anniversaire!”

Fortepianist Sylvia Berry will headline a series of performances with Les Délices as the period instrument ensemble gets down to business with its tenth-anniversary season. “Mozart in Paris–Part 2” will feature a surprising arrangement of Mozart’s Gran Partita, readings of his strange and humorous letters, and pieces by three of his contemporaries: Boccherini, Schobert, and Cambini.

"People deify these artists," Berry comments, "but it's so much more interesting to find out they were goofy people with humor and sorrows and all those things. Mozart was a great improviser, like a jazz musician."
