“That Erik Ross piece… It’s spectacular – thrilling pieces – really attractive and thoroughly musical screaming” Concrete Toronto - Lillas Pastia, Wordpress

“This hard-bop rhapsody for alto sax, percussion and orchestra… spoke a dense language… but that language was coherent and true to itself, and the banging and wailing were vivid. Notated music does not often sound this spontaneous…”
Burn - Arthur Kaptainis, National Post

“Ce superbe cycle de trois chansons a été le moment le plus fort de ce concert.”
Waypoints - Olivier Brunel, Classical Music Network
