Borealis Select Editions , Cimarron Music

“A polished, elegantly turned performance... lively, communicative readings... the performance was a scintillating one”

The New York Times

“ The Borealis Wind Quintet is a superb ensemble. Their playing is precise without ever being merely pedantic; their control of dynamics is masterly and their internal balance is faultless."

Glyn Pursglove, Musicweb- International

“The season began with a cheery concert by the Borealis Wind Quintet...the performance was fabulous.”

Schenectady (NY) Gazette

“The Borealis Quintet is first rate; the players not only know how to play their instruments, they know how to get music out of them...The whole recording is the stuff dreams are made of.”

Musical Heritage Review

“For maximum color and variety, the wind section is where it's at, and the Borealis Wind Quintet provided it in abundance... These five very talented people presented their program with a great deal of humor and verve.”
