Francesca dePasquale's Philadelphia Chamber Music Society recital debut Sunday afternoon was fascinating for all the things it wasn't, and, ultimately, for declaring all the things she isn't.
It was a wise move. Each piece, plucked from her recent CD, cast a light on a spectrum of strong qualities. Bach was most revealing, as Bach always is. The "Chaconne" from the Violin Partita in D Minor was respectably mature for a 26-year-old, nuanced in thoughtful ways, with well-developed character differentiation in each section. That dePasquale can seem emotionally exposed with no loss of security is a great gift.
