Recent reviews of Cook & Co. performances:

Connection 1: Unusual and intriguing…. the audience was carried away


Connection 2: Each sinuous melodic curve came down from the player’s lofty position with an unanticipated energy, the acoustic so responsive you could appreciate the hiss of bow on string..
