“The most striking was David Froom's Sonata for Violin Solo (2003), movements that segue between episodes of lacy elegance, lurching violence and wistful lyricism, until a furious, rhythmically unbounded, toccatalike finale.”  (Anthony Tomasinni, The New York Times)

"It’s obscenely difficult to write creative, interesting, and listenable pieces for solo instruments (I’ve tried!), but Froom has done a bang-up job here. Every violin teacher should have at least one student learn this every year."  (American Record Guide)
