"You two  played Raven with an edge and nuance I haven't heard. I love your interpretation. Both of you are expressive, intuitive, and extremely sensitive. Your ensemble is first-rate, and your energy, in particular, really stands out." 

            -Dr. Edward Knight, Composer-in-Residence and Director of Composition, Oklahoma City University


"Duo Rodinia's performance of my composition Two-Letter Words was first-rate. They bring to the music the perfect combination of musicality, curiosity, energy, and dedication." 

            -Dr. Ingrid Stölzel, Assistant Professor of Composition, University of Kansas


"Duo Rodinia not only plays with precision but with an enthusiasm and musicality that pulls the listener into the world that each piece creates."

             -Dr. Danel Racer, Assistant Professor of Music, Friends University


"As a composer, I value working with performers that aren't afraid to boldly advocate interesting new music to audiences and that understand the advantages of cultivating strong composer-performer relationships. In both of those areas, I couldn't be more happy to work with Duo Rodinia. Not only are Jamie and Lisa amazing musicians, but they have always gone out of their way to include my input in the process of creating engaging performances. I would not hesitate to work with them in the future and would encourage my colleagues to seek them out."

            -Brandon J. Nelson, Composer


"Congratulations again for your great recital and the successful completion of your tour! Our students were both thrilled and inspired by your presentation here at TTU."

            -Dr. Wonkak Kim, Assistant Professor of Clarinet, Tennessee Tech University
