"Concertmaster William Shaub, in an evening of notable work (Swan Lake), gave the violin solos a superb sculpted edge that radiated with intriguing details...The violin section as a whole played with an impressive unity of purpose in those grand sweeping gestures of lyricism that so describe Tchaikovsky’s music for dance.​"

​- Alan Sherrod

"His brilliant tone and stellar technique were clearly on display...his sound positively shimmered in the "Allegro assai" and he made the bar lines disappear." - Violinist.com
