“Violist Paul Coletti plays superbly. I don’t believe there is a better violist currently on the musical scene today, and few can match the standard set by this artist. Highly and enthusiastically recommended on all accounts, and a strong contender for my next Want List.” - Fanfare (David Deboor Canfield)
