"Bonnie Anderson and Donna Gross Javel, as The Four-Hand Piano Duo have performed several concerts at the Boston Public Library to very enthusiastic audiences. They play classical music with great passion and sensitivity. Their introductions to the pieces were spot-on and added enormously to the enjoyment of the music. We will be glad to have them again to transport us to a beautiful and exciting world of music!"
- Steven Dunhouse, Librarian, Boston Public Library
"I want to thank you and Donna for performing in our Bach's Lunch Concert Series at the Nashua Public Library. Your dynamic and energizing program treated us to a musically and visually enriching experience. With your warm, engaging personalities, you and Donna connected with the audience immediately, preceding each work with behind-the-scenes tidbits about the composers or the music to enhance people's appreciation of the music. Your lively program was a highlight of this summer's Bach's Lunch season. I think that the reason we enjoyed large turnouts at subsequent concerts in the series was that the audience left your concert thirsting for more..."

"It was an absolute DELIGHT having you and Donna join us on Monday morning! You bring so much light and energy into a room - it's quite contagious! Everyone who was at the lecture/demonstration has been emailing me to say "Bravo! That was great!" Perhaps we can see you perform again soon! Thanks, once again for inspiring us, educating us and giving us a bit of beauty to listen to during that cold wintry day!"

"The Four-Hand Piano Duo presented a spectacular concert at our First Sundays Classical Concerts. The energy and excitement Bonnie Anderson and Donna Gross Javel generated by their performance sparked a spontaneous standing ovation from our audience. Bonnie and Donna delighted the audience with their introductions and stories of the composers, and then brought us all on a magnificent musical voyage that started with great works by the well-known composers Mozart and Debussy to new music by still living composers. Their comfort with the music and their ease in front of the audience helped everyone relax and enjoy the music. They know how to make the music timely, relevant and accessible to all!"
- Kathy Cryan-Hicks, Head of Community Services Department, Chelmsford Public Library, MA
"The Four-Hand Piano Duo presents a very special concert played with enthusiasm and high energy. You will be touched by Donna Gross Javel and Bonnie Anderson's ease and grace of which they play. If you have not seen four-hand pianists play, they are definitely not to be missed."
- Rosalie C. Bloom, Fox Hill Village, Westwood, MA
"Again, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you. It is always a delight to have you and Bonnie here. I wish that all of our performers were as talented and personable as you two - I'm not saying that as idle praise – it is truly wonderful that you share your talent and lively spirit with us."
- Jim Kingsbury, Assistant Director of Resident Programs, Newbury Court, Concord, MA
