"I just listened to the Ekstasis Duo CD and I highly recommend it. Comprised of rarely heard gems, the duo imbues each one with their own individual character. Cellist Natasha Farny and Pianist Eliran Avni are great instrumentalists in their own right -- together, they are a wonderful ensemble with a beautiful and intuitive way of interacting with each other. Their performance was first rate from start to finish with the Ethel Smyth Sonata and the Zwilich Lament being particular favorites." 

-- Jolyon Pegis, Associate Principal, Dallas Symphony; Principal, Chautauqua Symphony

"Compelling playing. Farny and Avni move through performances that are both intimate and bold always with a strong sense of imaginative music making." 

—Rosemary Elliott, Asst. Prof. of Cello, Eastman School of Music

We are happy to offer Women's Voices as a video experience for concert presenters. Here is a sample from the program: Hommage à Nina Simone, arr. D. Kaufman

"I was so excited to hear this. The unique sound these two fantastic musicians bring to this hauntingly beautiful music makes me want to start it over to listen yet again! Their juxtaposing of the contemporary with classics helps to appreciate both more. Great programming, great playing - thanks for brightening our pandemic season of video concerts and then recording the music to make it available for everyone!"

—Richard Frisbie, Chair, Saugerties Pro Musica
