“flamboyant....convincing” – The New York Times ​

 

“enchanting violinist” – Messaggero Veneto (ITALY)

 

“All of the players were fantastic, but special note must be made of Olivia De Prato's violin work, which was outrageously good. She's also a member of the Mivos Quartet and Ensemble Signal, so there are plenty of opportunities to hear her.” – An Earful, Read full review
 

“But listeners who do pay close attention are sure to admire the way that the bowing of violinist Olivia De Prato (of Victoire and the Mivos Quartet) subtly transforms her tone to emerge from the ensemble texture with the dynamic swells in the ‘Pulses’ section. One could hardly wish for more assured, sensitive guides to Steve Reich's masterpiece.” – WQXR, Read full review

“the catalogue of virtuosic effects—slashing, picking, buzzing, bouncing off the strings—is astounding, all the more so for the lightness and delicacy De Prato folds in to sections that simply explode.”

“Each of the six pieces is executed with conviction, the violinist customizing her approach to satisfy the emotional and technical demands of the material and playing with gusto, audacity, and sensitivity throughout.”
