In Review: Kelly in DC Vocal Arts recital with Elena Villalon

“…a splendid recital with pianist Kathleen Kelly. . . Villalón gave a spring-like bounce to Hugo Wolf’s “Frühling übers Jahr,” assisted by Kelly’s perky touch at the piano. . . Kelly gave a convincing rendition of the enigmatic sounds of an Aeolian harp in Wolf’s “An eine Äolsharfe.” . . . The first half concluded with two songs that featured climactic crescendos of sound, beginning with Rachmaninoff’s “Dream,” in which Kelly’s accompaniment broadened like sleep’s spreading wings."
