"Outstanding" - Talvin Singh OBE
"Truly Unique" - Fire in The Mountain Festival
"Fran & Flora gave an intimate and captivating performance to a sold-out crowd. From start to finish the audience were engaged with their presence, humour and music. It was evident the two are deeply connected to the music they perform and the unique twist on the traditional tunes was the creative interplay and relationship between Fran and Flora. We look forward to having them back again!" - Risa at The Green Note, Camden
"London's best kept secret!...This a string duo bound for glory." - Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3's Late Junction
"Fran & Flora both share a vivacious and infectious enthusiasm for the world of music, an enthusiasm which is not wedded to any particular tradition but instead stems from a fundamental interest in human expression. Together they make music which is nothing short of magical, borne of true friendship, shared experience, mutual trust, and a willingness to surrender in performance through listening ." - Sam Beste, Hejira & Lima Limo Records
"Dazzling virtuosity combined with an expertly informed knowledge of Eastern European folk traditions come together effortlessly in this joyous partnership between violinist Flora Curzon and cellist Francesca Ter-Berg." - Darkly Artful, Jamboree Venue
