Manhattan School of Music faculty member and guitarist Oren Fader can be heard on over 40 commercial recordings. Violist and violinist Conway Kuo is currently the Assoc. Principal Second Violin, NYC Ballet Orchestra and performs regularly with the NYPO and Philadelphia Orchestra.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The hopeful, yet mournful, tone combines with rough attacks, motives separated by octaves, and lots of warm double stops. It's the type of sound that grabs you. Goya's program, spurred by the loss of his marine engineer father, who was only ever home for a few weeks a year, wants to tell a tale of the composer's thoughts and make the listener reflect on his own life. Dream of Sailing is a pleasant duet for flute and guitar that rolls along with ease. Where It Begins, Where It All Ends, a duet for cello and guitar, traces our existence from nothing to consciousness and back again. It contains some of the program's wildest moments, with cello scrapes and slides; but the guitar maintains a steady, march-like meter that offers balance.
