Giverny Trio; Christopher’s Classics, Arts Centre Christchurch

September 17, 2003. Reviewed by Ian Dando, The Christchurch Star.

Best of 2003: Best chamber music was the unusual combo of the Giverny Trio of harp (Helen Webby), flute and viola in Debussy’s Sonata and a new work by Gubaidulina.
"This meaty programme was one of the best kept secrets of Christopher’s Classic series. This was a demanding programme, especially for Helen Webby who played superbly throughout the entire evening. The Christchurch Symphony and Christchurch are lucky to have such an outstanding harpist".

" This chamber series’ commitment to high standards was surely upheld in this concert. Exceptional musicianship was consistently underlined in attention to dynamic details, beautiful shaping of phrases and effortless fluency. The three instruments were true equals, perfectly balanced and closely interwoven".

"The performance from Tony Ferner and Helen Webby of the Mozart Concerto for Flute and Harp was a winner. . . . . in harpist Helen Webby, Christchurch Symphony has a wonderful asset. She is highly musical, responsive and positive".

"Elegance, grace from Symphony . . . . Helen Webby, harpist with the CS, was the soloist in Dittersdorf’s seldom heard Harp Concerto. A graceful, pretty work, it was an excellent showpiece for Webby’s finely judged playing.
