I recently finished a project for Oregon Music News that consisted of me writing reviews of six concerts over a period of about three weeks at this year's Chamber Music Northwest Summer Festival. This was a great opportunity to hear some fantastic, world-class musicians, hear some world premieres of new works by important composers, and participate in a festival that is one of the brightest stars in Portland's arts firmament.
Here are the links to the individual reviews; I look forward to hearing any comments you might have, either here or at the individual reviews at Oregon Music News.
