"The brilliant music erects a moving monument to the victims of the Shoah, in which the harmonic language is clean and uncluttered, and the endless, broad reverberations suspend time."

"Most spectacular of all was the world premiere of American composer Erica Muhl's own string orchestra version of her quartet, Trucco. The work begins in a strange floating state that is punctured by hard accents. The high excitement potential of the second part ultimately dissolves into an unsettled finale full of unfulfilled longing. The work creates a strong impression, and stays fixed in one's memory."
Peter Zacher, DRESDEN SÄCHSISCHE ZEITUNG, Germany
"Muhl's Consolation proved extremely affecting...its juxtaposition of dramatic and soothing ideas could qualify the music as a rush of compassion...the 11-minute piece wove a warm, fervent spell..."
Donald Rosenberg, CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER
"Muhl's composition What is the sound of an angel's voice...was a ravishingly beautiful piece... It's a contemporary foray into impressionism, mysticism, veiled allure and the shimmering colors of a concert orchestra."
