Axiom at Alice Tully Hall, NYC


Exploring Eliot's Poem Cycle Anew

"The second half of the program was devoted to Pierre Boulez's "Sur Incises" (1998), for pairs of pianists, harpists, and percussionists. Axiom's players, clearly reveling in its tactile, changeable textures, gave it a precise, shimmering performance."

Joshua Bell Shines with New World Symphony

                                                              By Lawrence Budman

       "The harp is almost a second solo instrument in this score, and Julia Coronelli exquisitely dovetailed  Bell's phrasing, the repeated glissandos well blended in the orchestral texture... It would be difficult to imagine a better performance of Bruch's violin confection. 


The standing ovation and repeated curtain calls brought Bell back for the familiar Meditation from Massenet's opera Thais. In announcing the encore, Bell noted that he chose the piece to again spotlight Coronelli's exceptional harp playing. Bell's passionate conviction brought luster to this frequently played vignette."

New World Symphony performs excellent chamber season debut


By Lawrence Budmen

"Nine new fellows including harpist Julia Coronelli debuted with a transparently stunning rendition of Debussy’s Sacred and Profane Dances. Perfectly blended opening octaves of the “Sacred Dance,” expert communication and exquisite string techniques from the small orchestra created a supportive background for Coronelli’s full-bodied, superbly voiced harp passages. The modal, wry waltz of the “Profane Dance,” interrupted by explosive bursts of harp arpeggios, framed the musicians’ skillfully traded counterpoint."

New World Symphony brings oft-played Dvořák to new light

By Lawrence Budmen

"On the right day, the New World Symphony can hold its own with the world’s best orchestras. Sunday afternoon proved one of those occasions... The soprano came into her own with a radiant “Song to the Moon” from Rusalka, Dvořák’s most successful opera. Her lustrous timbre was exquisitely matched by Julia Coronelli’s harp and Neale’s astutely gauged accompaniment."

Review: Piano Concert Week concludes at CMF

                                                     By Daily Camera Staff


"The second half of the program was perhaps Christie's riskiest choice of an orchestral piece by the same composer to balance the concerto. The ballet music for "The Creatures of Prometheus," outside of its overture, is one of Beethoven's least-known works. Through judicious choice of selected numbers, Christie elicited an inspired performance, especially in a long number featuring harp and cello solos from Julia Coronelli and Bjorn Ranheim."
