Concert Review
Local Life March 8, 2013 by Michael Caruso


Chestnut Hill’s Woodmere Art Museum presented flutist Lisamarie McGrath and cellist Jeffrey Solow in recital Sunday, Feb. 24. Their program opened with Solow’s own transcription for flute and cello of Beethoven’s “Sonata for Two Flutes,” continued with Telemann’s “Sonata in E minor,” Villa-Lobos’ “Assobiio a Jato,” three preludes drawn from Bach’s “Suites for Solo Cello,” and concluded with Yuko Uebayashi’s “Suite for Flute and Violincello.”

Solow explained that Beethoven composed his “Sonata for Two Flutes” just prior to leaving his native Bonn for Vienna in 1792. Although there were a few awkward moments due to the cello’s range falling so far lower than that of the second flute part, McGrath’s tone was appealing.

McGrath and Solow were heard to better advantage in the Telemann. Although the composer is often considered merely a journeyman compared to contemporaries Bach or Handel, the “Sonata in E minor” is a lovely score, and both musicians played it strongly yet sensitively.

I experienced a deep and profound pilgrimage to India in November of 2012 where I performed on one of my Native American Flutes where ever I landed. I've published my memories from this trip to India on the website.

I've been asked to share my music with people who are facing major life transitions.  I am honored to play for individuals who are in the dying process as well as those who are grieving the loss of a family member or friend.  To learn more about how music can bring comfort and healing in a time of transition, please visit a new section of my website dedicated to Healing Music.

It’s been an active season filled with a colorful variety of performances and I am excited to share them with you here!  Have a look at the menus above to find upcoming performances, information about my recordings, links to other helpful sites and a way to contact me.  I love playing in all kinds of spaces for diverse audiences and would welcome performance requests; additionally, I am actively seeking to expand my private flute studio and encourage you to contact me if you are interested.
