"Jimenez took the final bars slowly, which made each note sound all the more penetrating and forceful, especially with Louis Pino’s dynamic timpani strokes. The audience in Finney Chapel was hit by a wall of sound so huge that it would make Donald Trump jealous."

"Dolores White’s Fugue Odyssey gave marimbist Louis Pino (who played from memory) an energetic workout. Accurately described by the composer as “an eclectic, polyrhythmic composition that is unwavering in resolution and intensity,” the piece is mesmerizing in its synthesis of polyphony, and Pino’s multi-malleting technique was impressive to watch."
