The New York Times has described his playing as “heroic, [showing] endless flair, color, and stamina.” The Times of London has called his playing “spine-chilling” and “exhilarating.” In recent years he has appeared as soloist with orchestras in the United States, England, the Czech Republic, Venezuela, and elsewhere, and in recital or chamber music at the Berlioz/Dutilleux Festival, Washington’s National Gallery of Art, London’s Wigmore Hall, and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. He made his Carnegie Hall debut as soloist with the American Symphony in 1992 and his London orchestral debut at the Barbican Centre with the London Philharmonic in 1986. He performs regularly on BBC in both live and recorded performance. Mr. Crow is Music Director of the Mt. Desert Festival of Chamber Music in Northeast Harbor, Maine.
