"I had the pleasure of hearing Cain-Oscar Bergeron give a stunning performance of my Sonata No. 1 for Flute and Piano in Lincoln Center on Jan. 25, 2014. Combining his truly gorgeous sound with an amazing, virtuosic technique, he brought my music to life with a wonderful sense of excitement, and great expressivity. His impassioned lyricism, and thrilling and dramatic interpretation of my music resulted in a performance which was heartfelt, riveting and genuinely beautiful."
