“...the quintet’s performance was magnificent. The very enjoyable music was only surpassed by the intriguing commentary... it was the best we have ever had.”
“They have been together for two and a half years, but it seems like they have known each other forever, for when you hear them play, their instruments make way for a perfect harmonic sound, and they perform at a level second to none.”
