"Chris Creviston and Oren Fader are both amazing performers with a true symbiosis at work."
— Daniel Coombs, Audiophile Audition
"Creviston has the personality and fingers of a first-rate soloist ... He phrases with great color and sincerity—his pianissimo extreme is especially good—and he has the ability to keep up with any flurry of notes on the page... The programming is a good blend of the standard and the new..." — American Record Guide
“The guitarist Oren Fader, the work’s third featured performer, played Brilliantly.”
— The New York Times
