My wife and I heard this performance in the morning, on our PBS station (WHRO), where we regularly listen to Performance Today. And before Fred Child announced the performers at the end, I turned to my wife (we were just waking up) and said "That sounds like the Claremont!" We were right, of course. So you three (incredibly gifted) ladies have developed your own distinct and luminous "sound," which we can pick out when we hear it!
