"It is my opinion that both Ania and Piotr Filochowski are extremely talented young musicians.
I hope they will have the recognition very soon for their talent and dedication to their art in music. Sincerely, Ida Haendel"
"It is difficult to discuss Ania's musical gift without using superlatives. Extraordinary is the word that comes to mind, she is nothing if not remarkable. She is already a wonderful violinist, but it is her comprehension of the music and the fact she already has a voice that is very much her own that impresses me and moves us all when she plays. She is wonderful..." --Itzhak Perlman
"Ania is a remarkable young violinist with strong musical sensitivities and a very cultivated sound. She's a very respectable young player with a bright future." --Aaron Rosand
"Piotr is a young, exceptionally talented violinist, endowed with a brilliant, effortless virtuosity, beautiful tone, performer's temperament and charming personality." -- Wanda Wilkomirska
