|Min Jung Park has a perfect, easy technique, a buttery tone...a natural feeling for the music, |
expressive inflection and lots of charm."
Edith Eisler - String Magazine
"She is a gracious, elegant fiddler, with a tensile approach to phrasing, a flexible bow control and - above all - a suave, unpressured, soft-grained sound that is reminiscent of such players as Kreisler and Oistrach."
Harris Goldsmith - New York Concert Review
"Incredible violin playing "
Chick Corea - Multi Grammy winner
