About Brooklyn Rider: “They are four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars, a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Praise for Aoife O'Donovan's new album In the Magic Hour: “Sweetness and sadness find a tenuous balance in the voice of Aoife O’Donovan — and in the songs on her second album…evokes the reverberant chamber pop observations of Grizzly Bear…[and] the lush austerity of Alison Krauss."— The New York Times
