"Altogether this is a stellar production by Hat Trick – April Clayton, flute; David Wallace, viola; and Kristi Shade, harp – who indeed make every shot count."
-Roger Knox, The Whole Note
“April Clayton, David Wallace, and Kristi Shade are all master musicians who collectively create something wonderful. Their ensemble blend is superb and well-adapted to whatever they're playing.”
-Ralph Graves; Composer, broadcaster, critic, WTJU radio.
“Hat Trick handles the dreamy impressionism with care and voluptuous expression. . . Hat Trick takes their respective instruments on quite a ride on this generously programmed CD. Anyone curious to explore the rare flute, viola, and harp literature would be wise to check out this album.”
-Don Clark, I Care if You Listen
“Hat Trick has pulled off something of a hat trick with this release. It has introduced an absolutely mesmerizing new work to the repertoire. It has premiered a significant new edition of a beloved masterpiece, and it has laid to rest a myth regarding the flute, viola, and harp trio’s origins. And happily, it has don this in a splendidly played and recorded program, so we can thoroughly enjoy the ensemble’s triple-triumph. Warmly recommended.”
-Ronald E Grames, Fanfare
“Quite exquisite!. . .All in all, this is a very fine and refreshing disc, well worth hearing. It makes great music for bringing yourself back to your calm center.”
-Lynne René Bayley, The Art Music Lounge
“The ensemble is so lusciously blended, whether blown, bowed, or plucked; the edges between sounds that indicate where one ends and the other begins are non-existent. This is the great skill of this trio, that they are so enmeshed it gives you a shivery thrill.”
-Alison Young, The Harp Column
