'Schultz’s warm tone blended with the cellos beautifully' ..... 'Schultz was in total command of the virtuosic demands' .....  'A spirited presence on stage.'

'The cellists showed great control with their pianissimo opening.'

'(The) players produced a beautifully blended tone, and the pianissimo reprise of the melody at the end was highly sensitive'.
