Reviews

WALL STREET JOURNAL  — “By turns sexy and sly, impassioned and dreamy, [Huebner’s] collection of well-known tunes, unexpected arrangements and original compositions brings together far-flung members of the fiddle diaspora. In some ways, it’s the story of the prodigal violin: of how the most aristocratic of instruments crossed the Atlantic and found itself in the rhythm section of a Cuban charanga band, or in a brothel in Buenos Aires.”

NEW YORK TIMES —  German composer and violinist Gregor Huebner’s “Six Songs of Innocence,” a lyrical setting of poems by William Blake. The most memorable moments were for string quartet, with the ensemble showing its versatility and flair with lively improvisations.”
