Equally at home composing for orchestra, playing Bach at the piano, or crossing over into pop, Sam Post is forging a career across styles and between genres. The Washington Post has praised his abilities at the piano ("confident, sensitive...a pianist with drive and intelligence"), the Bay Area Reporter lauded his chamber symphony ("Post has created a breathtaking musical joy ride"), and luminaries such as Renée Fleming have commended his overall musicianship (“incredibly gifted”).

Pianist Ralitza Patcheva has been called a “phenomenon” (The Washington Post) and praised for her “elegant pianistic technique”, “courageous, innovative interpretation” and “crystal tone; an amalgamation of witty virtuosity, powerful expression and profound sensitivity”. She is a prizewinner of the 51st  International Piano Competition " Ferruccio Busoni" and the Washington International Piano Competition,  as well as the  "Accademia di Citta di Pinerolo" International Chamber Music Competition ( in a duo with cellist Vasily Popov).
