"Hanna's strong voice was dark hued yet pleasant, and Brashear encouraged a full sound from the orchestra without overpowering his soloist. Conductor Malcolm Brashear collaborated on a passionate aria from Menotti's "Saint of Bleeker Street."

"I have been listening to WPRB for some time now, but I must tell you, the last several weeks have been both thoroughly enjoyable and deeply informative since you have had Mr. Malcolm Brashear on your schedule.  

During his 8:30 to 11 AM classical music timeslot, Mr. Brashear has supplied us with not just wonderful music, but special musical insight that enhanced the listening experience.  For me, as well as I'm sure other listeners as well, it's as though we were taken on a music appreciation course that was so enjoyable that it saddened me when it was over.

The fact that Mr. Brashear performed with the Hong Kong Philharmonic and was able to give us particular insight on the wonderful Symphony 1997 recording by Tan Dun demonstrates how lucky we are to have a radio station like WPRB that presents us with such fine material that is hard to find elsewhere.  Keep up the great work and let's hear more from Malcolm Brashear in the future!"

Deborah Lem, listener


"Malcolm Brashear informs in a way that personalizes his subject, familiarizing us with the composer's world, as both genius and human."
