“One of the most important cellists as well as musicians of his generation … He has something that others of his age do not have, both in the understanding of the music and the flawlessness of his technical facility. The word ‘extraordinary’ applies only to a few people in a generation, and Kenneth Kuo is definitely among the top.”
Harvey Shapiro, violoncello faculty, The Juilliard School
