Its sixty voices came in again and again to echo the warrior's praise of wine, his love for the fair Thais and the remorse that sometimes haunted him.Finally came the resonant conclusion with all the singers praising Cecilia, the patron saint of music. Distinguished Concerts Orchestra and Distinguished Concerts Singers International Jonathan Griffith, DCINY Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall, New York, NY May 28th 2017 Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) continued its Memorial Day weekend extravaganza with an all-Brahms program led by its artistic director and principal conductor, the estimable Jonathan Griffith.First setting the scene, tenor Daniel Joy, like soprano Catherine May, then convincingly caught the spirit of the lively sequence of changing emotions but baritone Andrew Mc Williams seemed rather too restrained in his famous show-piece aria.Led by Madeleine Pickering and bringing characteristic instrumental colour to the climaxes, The Amadeus Orchestra was always alert and bright-toned as it accompanied the soloists and the chorus.Only the benevolent but tyrannical precision of a Robert Shaw, and more rehearsal time, could have solved that issue.Although control of pitch in the softer sections was tentative, the choral sound was thrilling at the louder dynamic levels.Anna played with an ease and grace which charmed the audience.

Probably one of the hardest things any soprano has to do is to sit still on stage for thirty-eight minutes through the first four movements and then rise and deliver one of the most difficult solos in the oratorio repertoire.
Claire Kuttler has a voice larger than one is accustomed to hearing in this work, but it soared beautifully out into Carnegie Hall, though at times she appeared to be having breath difficulty.
