LE PROGRES

"Eric Crambes is another former resident of Planet Juilliard. A charming French violinist and a native of Lyon, Mr. Crambes studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Britain as a child and then with the teacher Tibor Vargas, living at his home in Switzerland. Ready for a change at 17, he broke away from Mr. Vargas and came to Juilliard.
Since graduating, he has moved smoothly into a flourishing career. He has forged a role as a fill-in concertmaster with respected European orchestras, and he commissions pieces, directs a music festival and plays as a soloist with dancers from the New York City Ballet. "I don't want to label myself," he said. "I have a very large spectrum of activities, and I like it that way."

''The eloquent violin solo - the marvelous Eric Crambes – who reduced the assembled crowd to silence...''  (about Bernard Cavanna's 'a messe' given to Radio France- October 2008)
RESMUSICA

''This young violinist has everything going for him. One can find dozens of Virtuosos at this technical level on the international scene.  But, it is much more rare to find such maturity in such a young player.  With Eric Crambes there are no special effects nor showiness.  This musician has something to say through the music that he interprets.''
LE PROGRES

LA TRIBUNE DE GENEVE

''...Impervious to all that is going on around, the duo Crambes Rogacey delighted the public in the Maurice Ravel auditorium for whom the music is both a pleasure and a spiritual enrichment...with the emotional spark that reveals the precocious maturity of our two artists.  A very enjoyable musical moment.''
