"Los Angeles Times", 26/11/90, by Leonard Feather:
Moscow, Idaho - It is a long trip from Moscow to Moscow, but for Arkady Shilkloper it was worth the effort. The Soviet French horn virtuoso was one of four Jazzmen from the Soviet Union who arrived here last week to take part in the 23rd annual University of Idaho Jazz Festival at his home town’s namesake city. Shilkloper, 33, on his first visit to the United States was the artistic sensation of the four-day event.
"Horncall", 1988, by Jeffrey Agrell:
Shilkloper and his bass player swing like nobody’s business. He rips and riffs and goes places that horn players aren’t supposed to go without a net, map, seat belt, crash helmet, overhead air support, and a note from their mothers. And he does so with extraordinary ease and musicality. I think maybe nobody ever told him "Jazz playing on horn is very difficult, and probably not natural or perhaps the phrase does not translate into Russian. I’d walk a camel a mile to hear this guy.
"Jazz Times", June 1994, by Leonard Feather:
"Another was the incredible Arkady Shilkloper, who brought his French horn from Moscow, Russia to Moscow, Idaho His control of the instrument, and his blowing creativity have set a new standard, even Julius Watkins, his idol never produced such results."
"The Independent", London:
"Unlike other European groups... the Moscow Art Trio don’t have to try to sound Post-Modem, they just are, and in a way that is what makes what they play look and sound both utterly contemporary and timeless... Once word gets out, this will be the band to book for every Festival going".
