[Haendel]: “it is little short of scandalous that a violinist of such mastery should have made so few recordings over the years.” (Gramophone)
“with Haendel’s incredibly assured tone and technical mastery, she could perform the instrumental equivalent of the singer’s telephone book and still entrance listeners.” (Classics Today)
[Hassid]: “a peerless technique and an arresting and frequently original interpretative approach. His technical security and cleanness of attack are awesome, his tone at once vibrant, virile and indescribably pure and sweet.” (Brian Crimp)
