Diane Windeler
“…Thus, the audience was treated to fare ranging from three authentically Iberian flavored scores by Joaquin Turina, to an especially evocative Francis Poulenc song cycle, to a Richard Strauss set in which Ms. Claycomb revealed a seemingly endless array of color, nuance and interpretive wares. Her excellent, wholly simpatico collaborator was Houston-based pianist /organist Keith Weber.
The voice is copper-toned, warm in the mid-to-low registers and gleaming in the upper ones, but with more heft than most coloraturas. There is agility to spare, pinpoint accuracy of pitch, virtually flawless diction and commanding dynamic control.”
