"…Amos Elkana's work, "TRIPP", for two wind instruments, two string instruments and a piano, is springy and lyrical and presents a kaleidoscope of beautiful melodies and fascinating tones in the ensemble. Anyone who listens with open ears may find it interesting and enjoyable. The relationship between the instruments is complex, and therefore is conducted Konstantia Gourzi, and with her the members of the Meitar ensemble - Yael Barolsky, Yoni Gotlibovich, Hagar Shahal, Gilad Harel and Amit Dolberg - perform a colorful, rich performance…The works in the album create a colorful and fascinating variety that is interesting to listen to in sequence, as well as each of them separately. The performance is brilliant, the recording is excellent, and the whole is a display of contemporary music, intriguing, deep and ignites the listener's emotion and imagination." (Haartez)
