“Laura Weiner deftly explored the varied textures and sonic effects of the challenging French horn solo.”    

        -New York Times, March 20, 2013

“It was clear that every member of the orchestra...was committed to the performance. Laura Weiner not only played her French horn exquisitely, she did so without a score in front of her.”   

                -Seen and Heard International, March 23, 2013

“Laura Weiner’s horn cadenza was astounding by itself. The “Interstellar Call” movement was a thesaurus of horn sounds.”

            -ConcertoNet, March 19, 2013

“There was no messing with the magic, just a reduction in forces.  Horn player Laura Weiner showed particular skill, but each player played a part in the delightful storytelling.”
