Carole Nash Recital Room, RNCM
9 March 2017
This wonderful concert, rich in tone and colour and variety of mood, showed the width of Margarita Wood’s range.
There was heartfelt emotion, wry humour, and particularly in the final piece, sassy attitude to be found in the songs, which included pieces by Mozart, Schubert, Liszt, Sibelius, Debussy and a couple of others besides. They asked lots of different questions of Margarita Wood yet her powerful performance answered them all with aplomb. She displayed an impeccable technique and her expressive rendition drew you into the drama of each song. You, the audience, had no choice but to succumb.
A superb programme, and demanding with it, superbly executed.
