"Elizabeth Field makes dazzling virtuosity look casual, and her genuine passion for the baroque violin infected everyone in the room. Many converts to historical performance style were made that day."

--- Peter Nothnagle, Recording Engineer, Iowa City, Iowa

"Elizabeth Field is a phenomenal coach and teacher; her generosity, insight and encouragement are a real gift! As a passionate and committed consummate artist on both modern violin and baroque violin, she is uniquely qualified to translate the baroque idiom into accessible musical ideas, mechanics and 'language' for the modern player; providing a way for every player who wishes to perform in an authentic early music style."

--- Alexandra MacCracken, director of Ensemble Gaudior

"Elizabeth.. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your wonderful visit to ISU last week! Your work and demonstration of the baroque playing styles with our Chamber Orchestra was effectively presented and so beautifully performed! Many of our students continue to discuss the impact of your presentation on our upcoming performances and performing aesthetic. This has made an important contribution to the continuing evolution of our students! "

--- Dr. Glenn Block, Director of Orchestras and Opera, School of Music, Illinois State University

"Dear Liz: I want to thank you for one of the most impressive guest artist concerts in recent memory. The way you alternated between the highly specialized and the most informative yet invitingly irreverent commentary and explication of the instruments, style, and repertoire, made the concert into a real educational and artistic experience for our students and other concertgoers.

On top of all that, you played enough violin (and violins!) for two concerts. After a full program of two sonatas plus the Bach Chaconne, you picked up your modernized Testori to premiere my fiendishly difficult unaccompanied Chaconne as if you'd had nothing else to do all evening. I'm still hearing comments on all of the music from my students days afterwards.

Thanks again for bringing your music to Illinois State University."

--- David Dr. David Feurzeig, Associate Professor of Theory and Composition, Illinois State University
