While I’m now fairly well-acquainted with Lionel’s playing […] this is my first time encountering his violinist sister Thelma, and I have to say I am mightily impressed. She has an amazing technique and a gorgeous tone to match, which she draws out like spun gold…
Jerry Dubins, Fanfare (37:3, Jan/Feb 2014)
Apart from the sheer technical security and virtuosity of his playing, Handy brings a virile, tight-muscled, lithe-limbed, sinewy strength to his reading that accentuates the score’s edgy energy. The moments of lyrical repose—and there are many, for this is still, at heart, a very romantic work—are thereby all the more set off in relief and repose.
