Berklee Today feature

“Friesen’s frenzied bowings and soaring melodies... sent many in the audience home in a state of musical rapture. ” - The Washington Post

“The music is beautiful and so is the playing .” - Yo-Yo Ma

“Transcending all categories, Friesen's music stirs the soul with a passion and sense of 'bright moments' that are nothing less than inspiring.” - Jazz Times

“Friesen takes the cello beyond its traditional home of the classical ensemble, opening the door to a new era for the soulful instrument.” - Digital Audio

“Never before have I seen a musician play the cello with such a fury and virtuosity. A whirlwind...incredible.” - El Heraldo de Aragon, Spain

“Friesen shows the kind of playing that makes him such a solid soloist. His tone is rich and his melodic phrasing is well formed. His presentation of a musical thought is never overstated, but it is never lacking, either.” - The Pittsburgh Press

“Mr. Friesen’s cello is as rich and full as a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.” - Ear Magazine

“Friesen uses the cello as a biting, crunching rhythm instrument.” - The Miami Herald

“Friesen is a cellist of perfection, a player with technique in abundance who keeps it in check. Playing with delicacy, intimacy and depth, he’s got chops, but places the music first.” - Option Music Alternative
