Examiner.com Review of Liana Bérubé and Jeffrey LaDeur – 2015 October 27

This afternoon in the Noontime Concerts™ recital series (“San Francisco’s Musical Lunch Break”) at Old St. Mary’s Cathedral, the recitalists were the duo of violinist Liana Bérubé and pianist Jeffrey LaDeur, who, when joined by cellist Michelle Kwon, also form the Delphi Trio.

This was clearly the case with today’s program, whose “main event” was Johannes Brahms’ Opus 108 (third) sonata for violin and piano in D minor, preceded by two short romances, the first in C major by Joseph Joachim (the first piece in his Opus 2 collection) and the second by Antonín Dvořák (Opus 11 in F minor).
