Without exception, all involved in this project give outstanding performances, the superb quality of the playing easily matching the high musical content…. if you want to listen to first-class, modern-day chamber music played exceptionally well, then seek no further.  —Classical Guitar UK Magazine Fables, Forms and Fears CD

The interpreters Beth Ilana Schneider, Matthew Gould and Nathanael May rank among the best in their field…. May proved to be a pianist with a highly developed and extremely differentiated touch and sound…. an outstanding interpretation…. the ensemble performed with such a polished sensitivity towards sound that the experience of musical transcendence could be felt by every listener.  —Fuldaer Zeitung German newspaper SOT concert at Great Hall of Ancient University, Fulda

May performs the music with incredible precision and his dynamics bring to life the moods and feelings of boldness, resoluteness, echoing, playfulness, dancing, sensuousness, confidence, and reflectivity…. wonderful performances by incredible musicians.  Classical Guitar Canada Pseudosynthesis CD

I was especially impressed with the somewhat spiky and angular characteristics of the Piano Sonata #2. Pianist Nathanael May handles this complicated fare quite well.  —Audiophile Audition web magazine Winter & Construction CD

Throughout the music is distinguished by the sensitively appropriate playing of Nathanael May on the piano, Matt Gould on the guitar and Beth Ilana Schneider-Gould at the violin. They have a natural easiness and unpretentious matter-of-factness in their deliveries, collectively and individually, that seem just right. They strike me as the near-perfect exponents of these works.  —Gapplegate Classical Modern Music Review Winter & Construction CD

At no time do you feel that the piano overwhelms the other two instruments, as it quite easily could. Of course it helps to have sympathetic interpreters as Richards does here.  —Planet Hugill classical music blog Fables, Forms and Fears CD
