08.31.05from' Chicago Tribune' reveiw
from Music review of the Festival we just played in Chicago:
'...Though every musician in Pharaoh's Daughter proved first-rate, the radiant vocals of leader Schechter and the astonishing virtuosity of recorder player Daphna Mor stood out. (Mor, in fact, stands as a force unto herself.)'

Check out this review we got from our great time at Floyd Festival, VA
05.31.05review of my vivaldi concerto appearance
With New York Ensemble for Early Music. Fred Renz Director.
"...The stand-out performance of the evening was Daphna Mor's. Performing without a score, she made the Concerto for sopranino recorder and orchestra in C major a recorder tour de force. The sopranino can be a shrill instrument, but Ms. Mor gave it a warm yet edgy tone that thrilled the audience. All but dancing to the music, she conveyed her delight in this delightful, difficult concerto to her listeners. Her agile fingering and superb breath control made the rapid runs, complicated ornaments and extended phrases seem easy. The audience shouted its approval."
(New York Stringer, May 2005)
