Anne Migette of The Washington Post :
"The highlights of the Fortas Chamber Music concerts, in my book, are the evening-length, fully-staged performance by Anonymous 4 of David Lang’s newly commissioned piece “Love Fail,” and the appearance of Dawn Upshaw with the Crash Ensemble from Dublin, reprising part of their performance on the striking CD Gra agus Bas. The Kennedy Center Chamber Players seem to be going through a shift, their entire programming for their four concerts not yet announced. What’s missing? On my wish list might be a composer-in-residence; contemporary opera; more groups like the Crash Ensemble; in-house projects and/or commissions; and a bit more spark to the NSO’s programming."
