WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DIANA HEROLD...
“Herold I could hardly take my eyes off of. She played lightning-fast four-mallet chords more accurately than other marimbists can pay with two mallets—for that matter, better than many pianists can play with 10 fingers. Never have I seen such an evening-length display of preternatural mallet virtuosity. Just as Handel’s Messiah is a better argument for Christianity than a thousand theological treatises, this committed musicianship sold you the politics whether you agreed or not.”
“Diana Herold, wields her faster-than-the-eye sticks with a power and authority that I’ve never seen another mallet player achieve.”
— Kyle Gann, [the] Village Voice
“…particular standouts who handled Muhal Richard Abrams’ difficult charts with authority was percussionist, Diana Herold…”
— The Boston Herald, Bob Young
“…and a pungent vibes solo from Diana Herold.”
— The Boston Globe, Bob Blumenthal
