"What a gorgeous tone Daskalakis has!"

American Record Guide

"....striking athletecism, musical insight, expressive embellishment and elegiac lyricism."

The Strad

"Poetic. She has a pure, but strong tone and finely nuanced vibrato and legato. The sheer agility of her playing is no end in itself."
