Our favorite press quotes:

“The performance was committed to wistfulness, any possible irony banished behind leisurely tempi and lush sounds.” (Matthew Guerrieri, Boston Globe)

“Brady and Zdorovetchi gave a sharp-creased and smartly polished rendition of the ingenious back-dated check that is Astor Piazzolla’s 1986 “Histoire du Tango.” (Matthew Guerrieri, Boston Globe)

“Longy’s Pickman Hall was packed, and I, not-quite-geriatric, felt like one of the oldest people in the audience. Radius is clearly doing something right to attract such a large, youthful following.” (Susan Miron, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“The Radius Ensemble deserves some sort of prize for inspired programming…” (Vance Koven, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“…grippingly gutsy…superb programming choice…precise and engaging…” (David Griesinger, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“‘Parfait’ is a kind of layered dessert. It’s also the French word for ‘perfect.’ It would be hard to call any concert of music perfect, but the one – titled “Parfait’’ – that Radius Ensemble presented at Longy School of Music on Saturday was layered and both savory and sweet, a toothsome end to any evening.” (Jeffrey Gantz, Boston Globe)

“Throughout…the ensemble played with a luxurious joy.” (Stefanie Lubkowski, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“An evening with the Radius Ensemble is quite like no other…It has been a while since such spontaneous enthusiasm has burst forth from a Boston audience.” (David Patterson, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“Hooray for this daring programming here in Boston. Luscious sounds radiated.” (David Patterson, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“Artistic Director Jennifer Montbach and her circle of musicians issued an alert. Some of the finest professionals around can still find a youthful enthusiasm which shines so obviously in their programming and performance.” (David Patterson, Boston Musical Intelligencer)

“Radius Ensemble and its artistic director, Jennifer Montbach, are clearly doing something right… Radius has earned the trust of its core audience.” (Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe)

“Radius is energetic and eclectic…in complete command, a performance bursting with color…” (Matthew Guerrieri, Boston Globe)

“Saturday’s performance was enjoyably freewheeling and energetic … drawn with rewarding delicacy [and] traversed with high spirits.” (Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe)
