Galax Quartet with contralto Karen Clark

“The collaboration…between contralto Karen Clark and the early music ensemble Galax Quartet boasts an endless dialog between tradition and innovation, past and present. It’s mesmerizing.”
— Joshua Kosman, SF Chronicle, 2011

Farallon Quintet

10 January 2017

"The Farallon Quintet is the kind of musical group that composers dream about. With technical brilliance and a luscious, edible sound, they engaged my music with a generosity of spirit and with an intuitive understanding of its emotional core.”
— Durwynne Hsieh, composer

Frequency 49

7 March 2017

Frequency 49

(A recent performance at Old First Concerts was) “delightful (and) delivered exquisitely by the Frequency 49 players.”

Alexander String Quartet with pianist Gwendolyn Mok

25 April 2017

Alexander String Quartet with pianist Gwendolyn Mok

“They were, to put it simply, terrific of tone, virtuosity and balance. The general quality level, as well as all the particulars of communicative virtuosity, place the Alexander Quartet right up there with the best on today's international scene.”
— San Francisco Chronicle
“Her (Mok’s) sense of flow is near-perfect, her phrasing a continual joy…”
— Fanfare 2016, Colin Clarke
