Augusta Read Thomas: Brio - Study Score

Reviews

Premiered a few months ago by the Des Moines Symphony, which commissioned the piece in honor of benefactor Carolyn Bucksbaum, Augusta Read Thomas’s well-named BRIO provided eleven minutes of effervescence to set the ball rolling. This is lithe and sparkling music that never sits down. Shanghai-born Yue Bao led it with impressive panache and much technical skill. Unfazed by the challenges that faced her in the music’s gossamer textures and inventive rhythms, she was also able to make the occasional bigger moments effective without exaggeration. Bernard Jacobson, Seen and Heard International
