American Record Guide
(March/April 1998):

"...of the infamous piano piece Herma (by Iannis Xenakis)..Justin Rubin puts the piece across with cliff-edge intensity. Ditto for the concerto-like Palimpsest, which will have your neighbors heading for high ground in this take-no-prisoners performance."

– Arved Ashby

La Lettre du Musicien, Paris (March 1 - 15, 1998):

"They performed Xenakis' music with incomparable concentration and strength, with the precision of a sculptor, exactly as this incredibly virtuostic music requires. Among the six works presented in the program, Herma for piano sounded like an outright classic in Justin Rubin's interpretation which flowed so naturally..."

– Bruno Serrou

Fanfare (September/October 1996):

" a magnificent achievement. As with the curtain-raiser (Plekto), we again hear Justin Rubin's remarkable piano....At the concert, I'd a hard time believing how well Rubin handled his surpassingly difficult part."

– Mike Silverton

Sunday Times, Great Britain (August 25,1996):

"The earliest of the five pieces is Eonta ...with a phenomenally proliferating piano part well taken by Justin Rubin."
