Duo Kalysta's new album "Origins" with Leaf Musicc was reviewed by La Scena Musicale magazine!
The newly minted Duo Kalysta (Lara Deutsch, flute; Emily Belvedere, harp) take full advantage of the atmospheric potential of the pairing, albeit with the help of violist Marina Thibeault in R. Murray Schafer’s delightfully playful Trio of 2011.
Deutsch, a player who can soften or strengthen her handsome tone according to need, is very much in the first chair.
The fluency and tonal command of Belverdere (like Deutsch, a graduate of the Schulich School of Music) is especially apparent in the arrangement of Debussy’s Prélude à l'après midi d’un faune...
… this is a highly listenable disc with good sound and informative booklet notes.
