NEW COMPOSITIONS AN ADVENTURE FOR MUSICIANS, LISTENERS

April 22, 2010 “Lindsay’s [“Piano” for mezzo-soprano and sinfonietta ensemble] left a strong and positive reaction…because of the aura engendered by the orchestration and the vocalist’s exclamatory story telling.

DIFFERING MUSICAL EXPRESSIONS CLEVER, MEMORABLE

NEWEST OF THE NEW PREMIERED AT CABRILLO MUSIC FESTIVAL

August 8, 2008 “Eric Lindsay billed his “Darkness Made Visible” as a dukeing-it-out between old-style classical music and aggressive modern fare. The resulting work, filled with cartoonish juxtapositions, blended lyricism with humor.” – Phyllis Rosenblum, The Santa Cruz Sentinel
