Review By Andrew Achenbach,Gramophone,October 2009

David Aaron Carpenter proves his credentials as a new viola star with an agile, nuanced reading of the Elgar [Cello Concerto transcribed for viola] and a powerful account of the Schnittke [Viola Concerto]. With Eschenbach and the players on fired-up form, this is one heck of a calling-card for the new boy.

Review By James Inverne,Gramophone,October 2009

For some, playing the Elgar Cello Concerto in a viola transcription will seem pure chutzpah, for others a continuation of an old tradition. Either way, David Aaron Carpenter provides his credentials as a new viola star with an agile, nuanced reading of the Elgar and a powerful account of the Schnittke. With Eschenbach and the players on fired-up form, this is one heck of a calling-card for the new boy.



Review By David Patrick Stearns,The Philadelphia Inquirer,August 2009

If there’s such a thing as an overnight-star violist, it’s David Aaron Carpenter. Only a few years ago, he was a lanky Princeton University student who had won a prestigious gig on a Philadelphia Orchestra youth concert. Now, having studied with Roberto Diaz and been an official Rolex protege of Pinchas Zukerman, the Long Island-born Carpenter is making an ambitious recording debut with a viola transcription of Elgar’s “Cello Concerto” plus Schnittke’s 1985 “Concerto for Viola and Orchestra.” It’s impressive, to be sure, though the kind of explosive energy that Carpenter generates in live performances has yet to be captured.
