“Brilliantly exploiting the potential and idiosyncrasies of this beautiful instrument, Hernández creates an expansive and lyrical work evocative of the New England landscape that is his home.”

– ABLAZE  Records

Arthur Hernandez’s ‘Janus’ places amplified cello and electric guitar in a series of driven or otherworldly sonic spheres. The influence of rock can be heard in the frenzied unison riffs and guitar glissandos. There are moments of tenderness from the cello, while the guitar explores a vast terrain of effects and ventures into wild cadenza land. The piece is concise, exuberant, and almost defiantly weird.”

– Donald Rosenberg, Music Critic, The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Exciting…engaging…thought-provoking and virtuosic… are just a few words to describe Arthur Hernandez’s music. The adventurous sonorities and rhythmic twists and turns in works like his impressive String Quartet No. 1 and orchestral work Stellaluna make serious music once again a fulfilling experience.”

– Jeffrey Krieger, Principal cellist, Hartford Symphony
