"positively breathtaking" - The New York Times

"It is quite impossible to overpraise the playing of the American Brass Quintet...they have everything...brilliance, attack, perfect ensemble and intonation, and a tone quality of unrivaled purity, range and power...a concert of such high quality one could only single out a few of the outstanding moments...sombre beauty...feather-like delicacy...technical brilliance...wonderful sonorities. For one listener in a long and full career of over half a century this was concert was a unique experience." -The Telegraph
