“Violinist Jennifer Curtis arrived at her Philadelphia recital debut - intriguingly - with the world-weariness of the young and the committed, as if she'd been out all day protesting something important.” - The Philadelphia Inquirer

“...She's a big personality, and has a deep, open, honest sound...” - The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Inventive and quite fascinating… powerful tone.” - New York Concert Review
