Robert McDuffie

Robert McDuffie (biography)
Few premieres receive the kind of instantaneous standing ovation, cheers and prolonged applause that greeted soloist Robert McDuffie following the whirlwind final bars of Philip Glass’s Violin Concerto No. 2. - Chicago Classical Review
McDuffie is one of the finest violinists of our age. He played with great clarity and precision, but without sacrificing anything in expression or musicality. - The Buffalo News
McDuffie played the piece with a dashing virtuosity that signaled his pride of ownership. McDuffie tore through its thickets of lightning-quick figuration over cascading strings and pounding synthesizer; the effect was that of a merry-go-round spinning madly out of control. It had the crowd up on its feet, applauding lustily. - Chicago Tribune
…because McDuffie was nothing less than brilliant in the four solo concertos that comprise Vivaldi’s ubiquitous opus. He had everything: a powerful, driving sound...immaculate precision in the furious figuration of the fast movements, and a floating, polished line in the more tranquil sections. His energy and communication never flagged, nor did his finesse of phrasing and articulation. -
