Critics Around the World Say:

“Exhilaration, thrills, and awe conquer audiences faced with the irrepressible virtuosity and musical achievement of emerging young performers. These are the stock in trade of Young Artists

– Los Angeles Times

“…iPalpiti sprang to life as a single, singing voice. It was the natural, “vocal” quality that stayed with me long
after the final notes of the concert were sounded…”

– Dallas Morning News

“…iPalpiti played with striking unity and spirit and had an infectious way of making music… All [artists] clearly
stimulated each other musically, showing mutual inspiration and respect.”

– The Strad Magazine, London
