“From the Diary of Anne Frank” with the San Francisco Symphony

23 Nov 2018 / in Reviews

“Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard proved a great choice to speak the deeply affecting thoughts and prayers of the beloved 13-year-old girl. Originally commissioned by UNICEF for Audrey Hepburn to premiere at MTT’s New World Symphony, “From the Diary of Anne Frank” is well-suited to Leonard’s firm, womanly tone. Sweetly innocent but also remarkably mature, her interpretation made it easy to imagine how Anne might have sounded had her life not been cut so horribly short.”
