"Wiancko...sails gracefully through acrobatic passages and unfurls gleaming phrases with sumptuous tone." – WQXR.org
“Fans of brilliant violin writing should be most excited about Farfalla and the Scherzo fantastique, two showstoppers that Wiancko and Vainshtein serve up with extra bravado.” – AllMusic.com
KONO MICHI'S 'ONE MORE DAY' EP IS HERE
"...An EP which is one of the most original I have heard this year. Using both her violin skills and her voice, which is distinctive in a GOOD way, the four tracks take the Cocteau Twins and Bjork as their starting point and then go some place barely explored before. Forget any misconceptions you may have, particularly about indie and classical meeting, this is an EP you should hear." - IsThisMusic.com
Michi's arrangement of Geminiani’s “La Follia” Variations for String Orchestra (written for ECCO) has been broadcast on NPR’s Performance Today, and recently received a glowing review in The New York Times: "A String Ensemble at Play: Body Language and Sheer Exuberance"
