"Violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and pianist Anne-Marie McDermott make quite a musical pair. In their recital they reveled in musical contrast from quietly simple to explosively broad, and they did it with consummate musicianship. They squeeze every ounce of drama from two pieces that stretch the definition of chamber music."
- The Aspen Times
