— San Francisco Chronicle
"An incandescent, heartfelt reading of Messiaen's "Quartet for the End of Time", with Eban's clarinet particularly mesmeric in the long solo sections."

— "The Strad" magazine, London, England

Hailed by the London "Guardian" for his "electrifying, high- powered performances", clarinetist Eli Eban has performed and recorded all the major orchestral repertoire under the world's leading conductors, and he is in high demand as soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player and teacher.
“I know Mr. Eli Eban's playing as soloist with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra on various occasions under my direction. I find him as a clarinetist to have a most beautiful tone and an extremely virtuosic technique, and as musician he admirably equates these qualities into fulfilling the composer's demands in each instance."
