"Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata and Brahm's Second Sonata in E flat were both pleasingly done, the latter coming across with the right kind of relaxed warmth. A particular feature of Ms. Frank's playing is the feathery, rather tremulous sound she can draw from the C string - most attractive."
- THE LONDON TIMES
"Panache displayed in lively performance for solo viola. Faure's song-like Elegy divided between the performers the resonant strands of melody. Frank executed the double stopping with panache. The Impromptu (Ernst Toch) fulfills the viola's capacity for passionate expression."
- CANBERRA TIMES, AUSTRALIA
"Miss Frank has a sweet tone and plays confidently. Madeline Frank's mastery was admirable in Impromptu by E. Toch.."
- NORTH SHORE TIMES, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
Ms. Frank played with self confidence and a firm touch. She produced rich warm sounds and infused her music with energy.....she caressed the strings with a steady bow...."
- THE TIMES HERALD
"Ms. Frank, an accomplished player, produced a full, warm tone from this rich-sounding instrument....The Brahms was perhaps the loveliest of all. She obviously felt passionate about this piece, and her playing revealed a depth and sense for phrasing that brought out the work's romantic richness....Ms. Frank gave the opening movement (Schubert) lots of life, catching the flavor of the folk melodies that give this piece its charm."
