The New York Times hailed Maria Bachmann as "a violinist of soul and patrician refinement", and The Boston Globe as "astonishing in every musical and technical regard." Maria Bachmann studied at The Curtis Institute of Music with Ivan Galamian and Szymon Goldberg, and was awarded Curtis's Fritz Kreisler Prize. Mr. Neiman has performed as soloist with the symphony orchestras of Belgrade, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Saint Louis, San Francisco, and is a highly-acclaimed recitalist.
