"Knowing and hearing Mariam and Stephanie's AdZel Duo has been a great inspiration and a delight for me and for my students when we welcomed them as guests at the Yale School of Music. These two wonderful artists combine with great skill and imagination to clearly convey a world of expression through the joyous sound of (what's better than one....?) TWO clarinets!"

"It is such a pleasure to hear the AdZel Duo. Their music making is incisive and shows a great spirit of musical imagination and invention. Mariam and Stephanie are virtuoso players in their own right, but together, their energy is undeniable and compelling. I have always called performing clarinet duos as 'buddy music,' the AdZel Duo proves it. Congratulations!!"
