"When Andrew Ernst Gombosi was born on March 7, 1987, his parents, Peter and Carolyn, decided to do something special to commemorate this special occasion: they commissioned a string quartet from composer Peter Child. It was a nice idea and Child has produced a nice quartet, as sweet, obstreperous and surprising as any proper baby ought to be... The performance was skillful, devoted and entertaining, and this was obviously an Occasion; the audience entered into the spirit of things and repeatedly recalled the Lydian Quartet to the stage and the players, in turn, repeatedly beckoned Child to rise from his chair." Richard Dyer, The Boston Globe
