“Violinist Yulia Ziskel performed with rich tone, brought out in pieces the visceral intensity of the violin concerto.”
-The New York Times

“Ms. Ziskel performed with a warm, sweet sound.”
-Strad Magazine

“Dazzling virtuosity”
-The Strad

“( Her Brahms Violin Concerto) was superb. (Ziskel’s) playing brought out every bit of emotion in the music without ever stepping over the line into sentimentality. She has a technique to burn, so that the rapid runs seemed easy. And there were absolutely magical moments.”
-Solares Hill, Key West, Florida

“Yulia Ziskel played with emotional connection to the pieces, leaving one to wonder why these pieces are seldom part of violin recitals… She communicated to the substantial audience her existing commitment to the music. One could see (Maestro Zdenek) Macal sitting in the front row transfixed. After Ziskel’s performance, he compared her from the stage to Pamela Frank and Henryk Szeryng.”
-New Jersey Classical Society Journal

“Superb playing and a very good selection of material. Highly recommended.” Debut CD review

“(Ms. Ziskel) possesses a beautiful tone…and a charismatic style that is quite stunning. She also has a brilliant technical command of her instrument. Yulia Ziskel is quite simply a masterful violinist and an exemplary musician.”
-Glenn Dicterow, Concertmaster, New York Philharmonic

Yulia Ziskel is one of those rare violinistic and musical talents whom one does not encounter very often. She possesses a seductively beautiful sound with which she sings and turns phrases with breathtaking beauty. And her virtuoso technique and flair are equally impressive.
-Sheryl Staples, Principal Associate Concertmaster, New York Philharmonic

“Miss Ziskel has proven to be a poised, inspired performer.”
– Martin Chalifour, Concertmaster, Los Angeles Philharmonic

Miss Ziskel is a very talented violinist with splendid virtuosity, fine musicianship and power of communication.
-Nelli Shkolnikova, Concert Violinist, Professor, Indiana University School of Music

“Yulia Ziskel is an excellent violinist. She displays an immediate musical understanding in her playing. Her polished technique supports a natural gift of musicality. As a performer, she is self-motivated and highly expressive.”
-Rostislav Dubinsky, Violinist, founding member of Borodin Quartet

“Yulia Ziskel is an extraordinarily gifted young violinist. I have recently heard her play a performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto that was truly outstanding musically and violinistically. “
-Mauricio Fuks, Violinist, Professor, Indiana University School of Music
