The subsequent recording on Orange Mountain Music reached No.1 on the iTunes Classical charts. In reviewing Namekawa's Carnegie Hall debut in 2012 in a performance of Arvo Part's Lamentate, the New York Times observed that she played with "understated eloquence." Namekawa made her New York recital debut at SubCulture in spring 2015 with a program of Gershwin, Jarrett, Shostakovich, and Glass. Namekawa will perform at Vienna's Musikverein in fall 2015 with the Bruckner Orchester Linz, reprising Part's Lamentate.

Johnny Gandelsman's musical voice reflects the artistic collaborations he has been a part of since moving to the United States in 1995. Through his work with such artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Bono, Osvaldo Golijov, David Byrne, Bela Fleck, Kayhan Kalhor, Suzanne Vega, James Levine, Mark Morris, Alim Qasimov and Fargana Qasimova, Nigel Kennedy and Martin Hayes, Gandelsman has been able to integrate a wide range of creative sensibilities into his own point of view. Combining his Classical training with a desire to reach beyond the boundaries of the concert hall, and a voracious interest in the music of our times, Johnny developed a unique style amongst today's violinists, one that according to the Boston Globe, possesses "a balletic lightness of touch and a sense of whimsy and imagination".
