Claire Eichhorn press . . . 

Eichhorn played with such pure tone and exquisite phrasing that her clarinet sounded like a fine singing voice."

Wilma Salisbury

The Plain Dealer, Cleveland Ohio

Eichhorn offered a warm-toned, elegently phrased account of Brahms' F minor Clarinet Sonata."

                                                                                                                                 The Corcoran Gallery, Washington, D.C.

Though written for the same instruments (Mozart and Brahms), the Quintets are worlds apart...Eichhorn made the distinctions clear, from dynamics and phrasing to texture, tone color and balance."


"Eichhorn scaled the clarinet's heights and dove into the depths of the Mozart with impeccable articulation and a legato to die for."


"All the while, the clarinet indulged in glistening solos or joined the strings as an equal partner."

Cecelia Porter

. . .her musicality was impressive."

Eichhorn's unforced musicality and rich tone, especially in the lower register, made it (Moisei Vainberg, Clarinet Sonata) sing."

Ensemble da Camera's Captivating Clarinet


The Ensemble da Camera rendered the four movements (Schumann Fairy Tales, Op. 132) with keen musicianship and a sense of freedom, moving effortlessly between the adamant and the more melodic figures.  Claire Eichhorn's clarinet shadowed the melancholic viola of Ricardo Cyncynates one second, tracing a lone, colorful arc the next.  In the tender slow movement, the two floated on the delicate harmonies created by the pianist Anna Balakerskaia.


Playing of such proportion and restraint actually increased the force with which the piece landed."

Daniel Ginsberg

The Washington Post

The Ensemble da Camera had great fun with Khachaturian's lurid, vodka-laced Trio, and dusted off Bartok's obscure "Contrasts" to reveal a piece of real charm and sophistication.  Their Mozart, his "Kegelstatt" Trio, K. 498 - was full of sunshine and subtle inflection."

I was most struck by the sensitive playing of Claire Eichhorn."

John Clower

Indiana University Press

she is a gifted clarinetist, precise and controlled.  The lush abandon of the music gave her the opportunity to play what she wanted to play and how she wanted to play it."

Eugenia Dixon

Prince George's Journal

Eichhorn's smooth buttery tones on the clarinet were alluring."

Janie Craves McCauley

Ashville News, Ashville NC

Clarinetist Claire Eichhorn has a liquid tone which she found no need to force.  She exhibited admirable control."
