“Bernhardt Crusell has certainly become a valuable commodity on the Street. He has been around since 1775, hiding in the aesthetic closet of some inquisitive clarinet players – until Dorrit Matson opened a wonderful door and yanked this composer out of the closet, treating Wall Streeters to a real adventure. She has developed a well attended series at Wall Street’s Landmark Trinity Church, supported by local businesses.”
“The orchestra’s tone was all the more significant in a reverberant hall where both strings and winds would normally have had an annoying muddy quality. That Matson’s group was so good is certainly the result of an impeccable pitch placement and well balanced strings and winds, no doubt the focus of an experienced and gifted conductor and equally gifted musicians. The orchestra, as a result, came out with its own unique and identifiable sound.” Paul Shelden, The Clarinet.
