“Exquisite focus and precision.” --Georgia Rowe, SF Classical Voice

“[Elliott Carter’s] Enchanted Preludes has a freshness and grace not often encountered in the composer's more strenuous, ambitious efforts. Cellist Leighton Fong and flutist Stacey Pelinka made it all seem interesting, beautiful, and remarkably right...a strong, vital performance. ”  --Jules Langert, SF Classical Voice

“A performance grounded in respect, not showmanship.”  --Eric Valliere, andante.com
