CD Reviews

Music Critic Review
Jeff Sizer | 08/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This duo is a match made in the stars! The cd is a compliment to any collection."
Stellar sounds soothe and seduce

"It's remarkable that more people don't know about this duo; their music is absolutely transcendant in many ways. It's very accessible (uncomplicated yet seductive) to mainstream music fans of all ages or of any music persuasion. In other words, you don't need to be a classical music fan to "get" Chvatal/Kritzer Duo's style. This album is perfect for road trips or candle lit dinners, background music at dinner parties or while relaxing in your favorite chair. Don't miss it!"
I loved the Jahla Guitar Solo!

"I can't believe Scott was able to play that piece, it was written for the Harp."
