“Evaluating the artistry of these performers calls for listeners who have had many years of concert going, and have heard many of the great master performers. This is artistry at its very best: well thought out, impeccably played and breathtakingly beautiful. Finding two artists who communicate with such perfection is an audience members dream! We joined an audience standing on its feet applauding excellence.” -- The Winter Park/Maitland Observer
