“Even secondary parts, notably the blatantly biased judge and his cronies (Flaherty’s Thayer & Frey’s Katzmann),who deny the defendants a fair chance, are such credible characters you want to walk up on stage and wring their prejudiced necks. For they personify Coppola’s point about racism.”  (Coppola - Sacco and Vanzetti)

"The two selections Songs of a Wayfarer by Mahler and Requiem in d minor, opus 48  by Fauré were excellent pieces to show off the extent of Mr. Frey's talent.  The beautiful well-rounded tones, which are difficult to achieve in some of Mahler's works, flowed easily as was the basic underlying understanding of the lyrics. . . his voice carries the weight of talent beyond his years."                                                                                             -The Chronicle
