Nice review for Cuarteto Latinoamericano as parts of the new release, Imagine Christmas: "This superbly recorded album presents a dazzling mix of excellent soloists and ensembles performing everything from Tchaikovsky's "December: Christmas" to "Joy to the World" (reimagined by Cuarteto LatinoAmericano & Lydia Lewis). Totally tasteful, absolutely delightful, and highly recommended as the perfect Christmas refresher." Bay Area Reporter – Dec. 14
