CRITICAL ACCLAIM


"... endlessly fascinating…” – The Irish Times


“Wednesday's NCH/The Irish Times Celebrity concert by the violin and piano duo of Catherine Leonard and Warren Jones placed what you might regard as exemplary test pieces at either end of what turned out to be an evening of hugely stimulating music-making. The lazy meditativeness of Ravel's opening movement was beautifully caught, as if the two players were musing with a kind of independent togetherness. Jones's dissection of the piano writing in the central Blues movement was endlessly fascinating, with even the slightest and shortest of chordal dabs given perfect harmonic colouring, and the violin's strumming sounding more banjo-like than ever. The moto perpetuo finale was breathlessly exciting."

"... near-flawless…” – The Boston Globe


“The songs of Richard Strauss, however, five of which followed, are never easy. The soprano - gorgeous in a powder blue gown and iridescent wrap - treaded cautiously, particularly in the middle part of her range, which bordered on an incorporeal delicacy. On the top, though, the familiar gilt-edged timbre still gleamed, while Warren Jones, the superb pianist, judiciously reduced the dynamic without sacrificing tonal depth. In a near-flawless "Morgen," Jones's pearly luminescence and Dame Kiri's silken line were in magical, crystalline confluence.”

"... the recital's high point..." – Philadelphia Inquirer


“Dame Kiri Te Kanawa opened the Kimmel Center's classical-music season Saturday ... in recital with pianist Warren Jones ... The biggest challenges were positioned at points when Te Kanawa would be vocally freshest, progressing from there into her comfort zone but avoiding sameness with fluctuating emotional temperature and varied piano writing, which was always noticeable because Jones is so interesting. He brought a particular celestial expansiveness to Strauss' 'Morgen.' We know from the composer's own recordings that he'd never stretch a musical idea so far. ... It was the recital's high point."
