Sotto Voce Tuba Quartet
"A welcome addition to a genre that has precious few entries. Sotto Voce is a very fine group that plays expressively and has excellent ensemble precision." American Record Guide
"Who'd a thought of it? Sotto Voce is performing all over the place as a professional ensemble, garnering raves as serious performers. It doesn't take long to realize that the relegating of the tuba to the basement of the pitch spectrum is unfair - it has quite a wide range." John Sunier, Audiophile Audition
