Fanfare Magazine (Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold)

From Fanfare Magazine (entire article in Issue 39:4 (March/April 2016) for subscribers:

“Claycomb possesses a clear, bell-like, agile soprano with excellent diction, and she delivers the music with a lightness and transparency that gives her interpretations a haunting quality. Teicholz proves an admirable partner on the guitar, matching the qualities of Claycomb’s voice in his phrasing and playing.”

The soprano’s crystalline timbre suits Debussy’s Mandoline and En sourdine well, and her rendering of Seven Popular Spanish Songs by Manuel de Falla offers an otherworldly timbre, less earthy and more mysterious than many interpretations, with Teicholz’s accompaniment multi-textured, yet subtle.

This excellent recital by two artists, whose collaboration goes back to their chamber music performances in San Francisco more than two decades ago, comes strongly recommended!”
