REVIEWS

 

 

“Margaret Donaghue’s clarinet strikes just the right balance at the outset…Donaghue is again a delight to hear, neither too bold nor too reticent…Her sound is pure and steady. When necessary it is as melancholy as a fading rose.”

—American Record Guide

 

"Soloist Margaret Donaghue’s main strength lies in her ability to completely disappear into the role, letting the music emerge with all of its natural grace and refinement." 

—ClassicsToday.com

 

“…the most impressive performance was Debussy’s Premiere Rhapsodie in which clarinetist Margaret Donaghue showed herself fully in synch with the music’s lyrical poise and relaxed virtuosity.”

---Lawrence A. Johnson/South Florida Classical Review

 

“…clarinetist Margaret Donaghue Flavin in particular brought personality-plus solos to the rollicking passages and pensive expression to the first intermezzo.”

---Lawrence A. Johnson/Sun Sentinel

 

“Clarinetist Margaret Donaghue played with beauty and elegance. The blend of Donaghue’s clarinet with (Jana) Young’s soprano was exquisite.”

---Lawrence Budmen/Miami

 

“Donaghue floated Mozart’s melodies in an easy natural fashion.”

---Lawrence A. Johnson/Sun Sentinel
