Notes & Reviews:

Stephen Framil, an internationally noted concert cellist acclaimed for his musicianship, technique, and emotive power, resides in Philadelphia. He is also a member of the Schubert String which is based in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. Music critic Harris Goldsmith of the New York Concert Review said of his Carnegie Weill Hall debut in 2002 that "Framil was very much a Starker disciple, bowing an aristocratic line and projecting a crystalline spot-on, pure intonation. I especially liked the plasticity occasionally introduced to temper the prevailing virtuosic brilliance with necessary repose. This afternoon installment was one to brighten a reviewer's heart." A student of Janós Starker, Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, Helga Winold, and Rostislav Dubinsky, Framil holds a Doctorate degree in cello from the Indiana University School of Music. Previously an assistant professor of music at Andrews University, he has held Artist/Faculty positions (cellist & conductor) at Rockland Summer Institute in New York, and at the 2002 Hong Kong Youth Music Camp Framil has received rave reviews from critics and excited audiences with performances in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the U.S. He has soloed with several Eastern European orchestras, the Viêt Nam National Symphony Orchestra, Bombay, India Chamber Orchestra, and others.

"The music is marked by clarity and elegance; brief dramatic turns and chromatic forays do not diminish this impression. While the pianist takes the predominant roe, and the cellists role is largely a supporting one, the three players do engage in wonderful dialogue...Flury plays with exquisite refinement and control to an extent non-flutists might underestimate...Osa plays her Steinway with a sound and style ideal for Haydn and much attention to voicing, phrasing, and balance. Nagy has fewer moments to shine, but whether reinforcing tuttis, adding chromatic harmony, or gently laying classical pedal basses, he does so with utmost discretion and perfection....Notes are in English and Japanese."-American Record Guide
