"Mark Nuccio's solo in the finale of Prokofiev's Fifth symphony was a marvel of far-away delicacy."
"Recently appointed principal clarinet Mark Nuccio also dazzled, completing a quartet of principal woodwinds that should be the envy of any major orchestra."
"rocked the house"
"The enigmatic clarinet solo at the end of the first movement (Nielsen 5) was rendered beautifully by Mark Nuccio."
-the New York Times
"Superb individual contributions to the Shostakovich performance"
-CHICAGO CLASSICAL REVIEW
"Mark Nuccio filled his own solo sections with mystery and insight"
"Mark Nuccio totally ran with it. That first movement was played with wit and despair, the clarinet cadenza ripped open clarinet technique (it made Goodman's own recording somewhat pallid)."
