"Kati Agócs's music is blessedly unsophisticated in any conventional way. Instead it has heart; it reaches the hearer through melody, drama, and clear design. Even a brief recent cello duet, I and Thou, with its soulful directness, and its naturalness of dissonance, reveals much about the composer’s address to the listener."

"Both cellists were heard in I and Thou, a new piece commissioned from Kati Agócs, a gifted young composer who recently earned her doctorate from Juilliard. A brooding first movement, punctuated with courtly trills, segued into a second movement in which syncopated melodies were draped across chugging ostinatos. The performance could have used more polish, but the music warranted Ms. Agócs’s inclusion in such notable company."
