    There's no question Hero Brother is a tremendously accomplished series of recordings that hold together as a whole, but one also gets the sense of being at the beginning of a journey that could get better as the years go by.

    Hero Brother stands very much alone as an artistic statement, calmly ravishing and emotionally centered.
  5. 75
    Overall though, this is a special album, and a real accomplishment. To make a record largely of solo violin music with songs played as impeccably as this, but have the performance itself not be the focus, is remarkable.
  6. 70
    Hero Brother takes a few listens to fully understand, but the effort is rewarding and captivating.

    It's not exciting, but intimate and beautiful. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.98]
