Entrez, le Diable has been garnering great reviews from media outlets around the world – see below for a selection of highlights!
“…fierce displays of technique and impassioned rhetoric…The intrepid Soltis hurls herself into all of the music, producing gritty sounds and explosive passagework when she isn’t caressing lines with poetic grace.”
DONALD ROSENBERG, Gramophone, October 2017
“…Soltis’ strengths: her effortless agility, her control in all registers, and her ability to imbue even the wispiest sonorities with definition and purpose.”
JED DISTLER, ClassicsToday.com, November 2017

Featured new release on “For the Record”
Violinist.com, July 2017
“…rife with humor and demure sensuality…[a] fascinating disc…The whole disc has reveled in the inter-twining of concertante and solo elements, in which Soltis has had thoroughly transparent assistance from Adalina MacAdam-Somer, Lucas Harris, and Justin Murphy-Mancini. Credit Producer Geoffrey Silver with a sound team that has warmly and pointedly captured the sensibility of those audacious days at Concert Spirituel.”
GARY LEMCO, Audiophile Audition, August 2017
“This is virtuosic music played with involvement…”
DAVID MOORE, American Record Guide, September/October 2017
“rewarding and highly expressive interpretation…delightfully enchanting…Why in the world don’t we hear these things more often? Ms. Soltis’s playing is evocative, technically skilled, joyous when necessary, and often downright beautiful. The album offers a privileged glimpse into a musical world of long ago that many of us may not have heard before: in this case, to the beginnings of the cello, an instrument for many years not thought fit for a proper solo position…There is excellent clarity about the instruments…a fine, resonant sound…clean, vibrant tones. It’s a most-realistic presentation.”
JOHN J. PUCCIO Classical Candor, September 2017
“…[an] adventure of discovery…”
