The performance was wonderful — Ellis and friends clearly put a lot of work into this fiendishly difficult music. When they bowed close to the bridge, it was delightfully creepy, emphasizing the dissonant soundscape as though with an icy highlighter. The dense, constantly changing texture kept emotions high, even in moments of calm. The overall effect in Berg’s two movements was of a continuous storm, and these musicians buffeted the air beautifully.

the two soloists performed with a musical sophistication to their performance that many musicians can only hope to achieve.....

----Cleveland Classical

The opening movement immediately revealed Earth and Air’s warm, resonant, and unforced tone. They played with lush vibrato — lithe and supple — with just the right amount of sentimentality.
