Notes & Reviews:

Described as a "violinist who most often takes your breath away" by Gramopone, Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio enjoys a varied performing and recording career as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. With a discography of more than 75 orchestral and chamber music CDs, Ms. Sant'Ambrogio also serves as Concertmaster of the Fresno Philharmonic Orchestra.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio and James Winn add Brahms's Scherzo to their recording of the three canonical violin sonatas. Again we have a historical piano, the 1909 New York Steinway D owned by the University of Nevada, Reno. A softer sound also comes from this instrument, and the player keeps his dynamics very much below his partner's. Sant'Ambrogio plays very softly too, and the effect is intimate. This is chamber music as you would play it in a small room.
