"Victoria Schultz just gets better at making incredible
music. Her latest album project will make the hair stand
up on your arms as you listen to what must be some of the
greatest music I have ever heard in 30 years as a producer.
If you are only going to buy one CD of incredible classical
music this year, this CD is worth whatever you have to pay
for it. It's tantalizing, it's invigorating and makes
you think of sensuality, love, warm beaches, and....OK just
let your mind keep wandering."

“Victoria Lynn Schultz is a concert harpist/vocalist
who masterfully brings her instrument alive.”
“She is the founding member of Tryskelon, where she
is joined by Robin Etter on flute and Daniel Flick, who plays
violin, viola, mandolin, guitar, bass and percussion.”
“Celtic Crossing” presents 11 cuts, nine of which
are Schultz compositions, which places this CD on its own
plane. The innovative writing is solidly “in the tradition,”
yet exhibits a strong connection to the contemporary in its
complex arrangements, which make judicious use of accompanying
instruments. Outstanding technicians, Flick and Etter complement
Schultz terrifically. Ensemble playing is key here, and each
musician keeps respective instruments in check with equal
grace, matching each other perfectly”.
“Celtic Crossings” blankets the listener with
overall superbly portrayed selections, exquisitely enveloping
listeners in warm, engaging music.”
