"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.”

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.”

“Her (Mok’s) sense of flow is near-perfect, her phrasing a continual joy…”
