“What continually impresses me about this ensemble is the way they can convey depth, conviction and an emotional range and intensity without ever overwhelming you with either volume or gesture. It’s very easy to imagine that the Beethoven and Mendelssohn works sounded like thiWhat continually impresses me about this ensemble is the way they can convey depth, convictis at their premieres, but very difficult to imagine that they sounded better.” (Terry Robbins, The WholeNote)
