  • Refreshingly different from the innumerable and inescapable 20-something year old females flouting flesh and posturing protuberant anatomical features first and second, with musical accomplishment third.

      • There’s a million of them. Just check (what’s left of) the Barnes and Noble cd section. 20-year-old girls with violins over their boobs everywhere.

  • One of our living National treasures. A brilliant man, musician and mentor. Bless him with more years to share his legendary gifts.

  • Why he has never been a soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra during my 35 career with this organization is beyond belief. The system of choosing soloists is BROKEN. Has been for as long as I have a memory.
