“In Danses sacree et profane, Debussy’s concerto for harp and string orchestra, soloist Elaine Barber, in possibly the high point of the concert, charmed the audience with clarity, technical excellence and healthy expressiveness.”
-- Austin American-Statesman

“Ms. Barber ... was no less than spellbinding. A natural and thoughtful musician, Barber also has an effortless technique. Her interpretation of the Ginastera, regarded as perhaps the finest work for solo harp, was like her red dress: vibrant.”
--Mississippi Business Journal

“Ms. Barber’s exquisite harp solo developed the theme so entrancingly it seemed the audience stopped breathing.”
-- West Austin News

“Elaine Barber’s performance was electrifying.... The colors she extracted from the harp seemed inexhaustible. The cadenza was simply gorgeous and the ensemble work between artist and orchestra was dead on.”
-- Northside Sun

“...strength, clarity, and expression.... The harp’s many virtues were aired by Barber’s many talents.... Her lovely strings talked, sang, fluttered and soared through lyric, dramatic, and exotic passages.”
