“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."

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