Amy Beth Horman press reviews

"Ms. Horman is an excellent, refined performer. Her violinistic skills are of the highest order, with a fluent, polished technique, and a warm, appealing, dark burnished tone. I am delighted to recommend her as an exciting, outstanding violinist, a great asset to an orchestral or chamber season, and a surefire hit with any audience."

  Guillermo Figuerola, Music Director
New Mexico Symphony
Puerto Rico Symphony

“Violinist Amy Beth Horman showed she had the virtuosity and stamina necessary to navigate Beethoven’s colossal Violin Concerto in D, Op. 61… Horman traced the soaring lines and rich textures with golden, full tone.” [performance with the Fairfax Symphony]

  The Washington Post

“Pairing Horman with the expertise of pianist Brian Ganz, Stravinsky’s Duo Concertante rebooted the evening with its fresh effusions of tonal lyricism, immaculate craftsmanship and invigorating rhythmic playfulness. Violinist and pianist had a firm grip on the music’s interworkings, alternating episodes of percussive tension with wistful melodic reflection … Horman’s bow captured the untamed thrust of the Brahms.” [Recital, Strathmore Hall]

  The Washington Post

“Intelligence and emotional generosity … unerring sense of line and gift for highlighting important themes … She brought passionate intensity to a program of disparate works, from Franck’s familiar Sonata in A and a Bach partita that sounded characteristically like the ruminative thoughts of the composer in measured reflection to a sonata by Corigliano … Her vigorous reading of a soaring solo passage in the Corigliano … had members of the audience quietly craning their necks forward as if in hope of bathing a little deeper in her exceptionally warm tone.” [Roth Concert Series]

  The Washington Post

“She was transfixing in the classics … Her Heifetz bespoke a budding virtuoso. Her Mozart bespoke a musician.” [Recital, Strathmore Hall]

  The Washington Post

“…having the stuff of greatness.”

  The Washington Post

“ . . . it was a real treat to have soloist Amy Beth Horman perform the [Carl Nielsen] Violin Concerto with the JCC Orchestra … Horman was in full control throughout the long opening movement, gentle and melodic in the surprisingly icy slow movement, and navigated the tricky dance rhythms of the finale with ease … Ms. Horman made a very good case for the piece.”

  The Montgomery County Sentinel

“… brilliant and commanding … shimmering tone … supple technique…”

  The Rockville/Montgomery
County Gazette

“… unerring sense of line and gift for highlighting important themes … passionate intensity.”

  The Washington Post

“Horman traced the soaring lines and rich textures with a golden, full tone that complemented the full-blooded support of the orchestra.”
