PRESS:

“There was an irresistible warmth in everything Miss Sant’Ambrogio did. It translated into a special quality of sound, and it gave Hindemith’s Solo Sonata both a dignity and a sense of drama…One has rarely heard the ‘Arpeggione’ played with such love 
-THE NEW YORK TIMES 

“She comes impressively close to the soul of Bach.” “It is a miracle of sound.” 
-GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE 

“Sant’Ambrogio seemed to approach the Dvorak Concerto the way a fine singer approaches an opera. She made the music sing, infusing every phrase with lyricism and drama.” 
-THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH 

“Sant’Ambrogio connected with the Lincoln Center audience immediately, smiling at the crowd as the orchestra behind her played.” 
-THE NEW YORK OBSERVER
