"Your choice of (varied) repertoire fit the occasion perfectly, you made beautiful music together...many commented on your wonderful performance. I am musically trained-I listened to quite a few websites of string quartets, and your performance outshone the others. Live, it was even better! You have my highest recommendation."
-Franklin Abrams, October 14, 2007 performance at Temple Bethel in Great Neck
