"With enthrallingly flawless execution and miraculous synchronicity, the Carpe Diem String Quartet wowed their New York audience on Saturday night at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall" (NEW YOR THEATRE GUIDE) “...Until Saturday evening, I had never heard a performance by one of these multilingual quartets where the classical repertoire was delivered at a level that was competitive with the finest traditional groups. But the Carpe Diem Quartet, appearing at the Dumbarton Church, was extraordinary. Among these contemporary quartets who speak in different tongues, the Carpe Diem is the best one out there.” (THE WASHINGTON POST, WASHINGTON, DC) “The Carpe Diem players turned in a fiery and flexible performance that was astonishingly free...” (THE NEW YORK TIMES) “One would have to search long and hard to find a more charming and enjoyable chamber music concert. . .
