Heartiest thanks for a beautiful performance of my Polish Fantasy.
– I.J. Paderewski, 1922
I'll never forget the cycle of concertos which revealed for me lots of Mozart beauty that I keep in my heart with much gratefulness...
– Arthur Rubinstein, 1979
Newsletter - January 2017
A new year deserves a new newsletter, and happily, there are glad tidings to report.
Most gratifying is the release on Roméo Records of a 2-CD set of Nadia Reisenberg's solo and chamber pieces, all of them taken from live, unedited performances, none of them previously available in any form. From faculty concerts at the Mannes College of Music, there's Weber's "Grand Duo" with the great clarinetist David Glazer; Mozart and Beethoven Trios with Glazer and equally revered cellist David Soyer (then on leave from the Guarneri Quartet); Beethoven with three members of the Budapest Quartet; and with the full Galimir foursome, the sparkling Dvorak Quintet.

She played so beautifully the violin then as she plays the theremin now...I wish she could teach all the young musicians who are learning to make music, because they should learn from her what it means to play a phrase from the heart...Like Nadia, Clara is fantastic.
– Alexander Schneider, 1989
