MILTON HURWITZ / 230 Kings Mall Ct ste 179 KINGSTON,NEW YORK 12401
I enjoyed your superlative performance yesterday-your experience as artist in residence at the New England Conservatory emerged as a mutually successful result I especially enjoyed the Benjamine Britten quartet In the future I will follow your performances all over the world and anxiously wait to hear you perform again in my location here in Ulster County,New York Respectfully Milton (Lhitriot!)

William Badgett / Virginia Military Institute
Your performance at VMI last night was an unqualified triumph. Uniformed cadets, many of whom are headed for the military services, are sometimes reluctant to express enthusiasm for anything as nebulous, time-consuming, unquantifiable, and (to them) strange as classical music. Not so those who saw and heard you perform Britten and Beethoven last night. During the intermission, one demanded to know where he could buy your CDs. ("I want all of them," he said.) Three others told me that while listening to the Britten they had been inspired to sign up for the history of music class that I'll teach next semester. A musically sophisticated woman from the local community who had attended a performance of the Emerson String Quartet just last Sunday offered this: "The Emersons were technically flawless---quite wonderful in their way and deserving of their reputation---but these people were truly inspired!" Then, lowering her voice conspiratorially, she added, "The Ariel is obviously the better quartet."

John Hammer / Charlotte, Vermont
Congratulations on a great concert at Rutland today. Your playing was magnificent. I particularly enjoyed the second movement of the Schubert and the first and third of the Hayden. I never liked Webern until today. After you explained the work, I was transfixed. What a wonderful piece! I hope you play it again for us on Vermont Public Radio tomorrow. Thank you. Sorry I'll miss your concert in Burlington this summer.

I was also at the March 31 concert in Rancho Mirage, and agree completely with the previous guest's entry. The entire performance was superb.

Elaine Wang Meyerhoffer / Palm Springs
I was at your Rancho Mirage concert today...it was unbelievably fabulous! All four instruments with their own character and individuality, yet all melding into one in brilliant service to each musical piece -- you are so strong on your own, and so exponentially strong together. I was breathless during the Haydn and Schubert (a little confused by the Webern, but ultimately grateful for the experience of having it played as best as it possibly could)...some of the most lovely, intense, focused and moving soft playing ever! Not to make comparisons, necessarily, but I just went to the Irvine performance of a Shostakovich piece with Garrick Ohlsson and the Takacs Quartet -- simply not as exciting, fresh and committed as your playing. Bravo.

Ben Dominitz / Cincinnati
Evi Levin has encouraged me to reach out to you. Just heard your movt 1 of the Mozart d minor on line. It is much as I hear it. Well conceived and played with wonderful allusions to the despair and darkness behind the semi-happy surface. Nice allusions to 20th century tonality and mystery. Yaffe me-od.
