Orpheus member Alan Kay performed with grace and expression, demonstrating the full range of the instrument's tonal ability. Joanna Barouch, Broadway World A former Artistic Director of the Orpheus and a teacher of renown, [Alan Kay] gave an eloquent introductory note on the genesis of Brahms’ late work featuring his instrument. His sound was clean, and melodious throughout the performance, while his conversations with Abigail Fayette (who took over the first violin chair for the piece) and violist Dov Scheindlin were truly collaborative. In his interventions, Jonathan Spitz pointed out that the cello was still Brahms’ most expressive instrument. Edward Sava-Segal, Bachtrack
