Flute | Past Press Clients
Acclaim
"Paula Robison is quite simply a master of her instrument."
The New York Sun
"Superb playing. She belongs unambiguously in the highest echelon."
The Financial Times
"A rare artist who can make the flute sound both sensuous and classically pure ... An absolute wonder."
The New York Times
"The Orchestra laid out a cushioned, exotic tapestry of sound, from which Ms. Robison soared triumphant, like a breath of clear air."
Wall Street Journal
"She doesn't seem constricted by the complexities of a score, but rather channels intensity into more direct musical communion."
The Washington Post
"Music bursts from her as naturally as leaves from a tree."
The New York Times
"Her playing is illuminated by a wonderful sense of fantasy that searches out the music's inner being."
Pittsburgh Gazette
"Her playing weds impeccable breath control and dexterity to a tone that seems to inhabit the entire color spectrum with uniform lusciousness. If an infectious charm and vitality informs her playing, that is because Miss Robison knows how to balance her own natural gifts with style, sensitivity, taste, and, above all, a musical integrity that never falters."
The Chicago Tribune
"Paula Robison plays exquisitely.  The intense humanity of her playing has only deepened with time."
The Washington Post
"One meets remarkable human accomplishments every day, but Miss Robison showed me things I hadn't known the machine could do- the breath of tone she summoned, the sweetness of the even, fleet, soft playing. She breathed and phrased and inflected and colored the music like a great singer; only the clarity of articulation suggested the instrumentalist."
The Boston Globe
"Her playing is colored by a joy and spontaneity that communicates to everyone around her, audience and fellow musicians."
The Washington Post
"Personality suffuses Ms. Robison's playing. She is mistress of the pregnant pause, the delicate inflection, the surprising turn of phrase. But the music itself is always the focal point, never the vehicle with which to show off the performer."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"She makes beautiful music on that golden rod, producing handsome, expressive tones, articulating assertive musical sentences, flying through quick passages easily and with brio. The melding of glamour and art always makes critics nervous, but it can be viable. Even irresistible."
Los Angeles Times
"In her hands the instrument was not merely a flute, but also a violin, birds and opera singers"
Philadelphia Inquirer
"She produces with ease an unusually large, luminous sound. Fabulous control of breath and tonal shading."
Boston Globe
