“Les Violons du Roy … is indeed aptly-named. The Quebec City-based chamber orchestra … produced a sound fit for royalty, with some of the most silky-smooth string playing I have heard.” – The Morning Call

“[Isabelle Faust’s] sound has passion, grit and electricity but also a disarming warmth and sweetness that can unveil the music’s hidden strains of lyricism …” – The New York Times
