"The chief pleasure of their (Philadelphia String Quartet) playing was the natural musicality with which all four players articulate their phrases....the artistry of their recently acquired cellist a definite asset."

As soloist:

"Enyeart is a fine cellist...he displayed a sweet, richly lyrical tone, and the flexibility of his bow arm brought convincing ferocity to rapid passages."
Paul Horsely
The Kansas City Star

"It was splendid playing. Enyeart and Merfeld worked together with a unanimity of accord and a spontaneity which occurs seldom in rehearsal and hardly ever in performance. Enyeart produced a big, passionate, thoroughly Romantic reading (Brahms F Major Sonata)...all opulence and freedom."

"Enyeart played the solo G Major Bach Suite with the style, tone, and phrasing of a cellist born to play Bach."
Melinda Bargreen
The Seattle Times

"...a stellar cello premiere. The performance (David Dzubay Sonata) seemed to me a model of clarity and intent."
John Ardoin
Dallas Morning News

"...a rare and special gift. The two played in perfect accord with tacit musical understanding, perfect phrasing and beautiful tone...the most enchanting music you can imagine!"
Chen Yaping
China Daily, Beijing

"Enyeart impressed as an Apollonian musician with a rich satiny tone, favoring clearheaded sensitivity over flamboyance."
Scott Cantrell
Kansas City Star

"Cellist Enyeart relied on a smooth, mainstream tone quality, combined with his usual technical perfection, and moved easily from the predominant dark, brooding moods to the occasional forays into sophisticated witticism." (Barber Sonata)

"Enyeart began by emphasizing the dark hues and the insistent undertow of the Prelude of the six-movement work (Bach Suite #4), but found a striking aura of solitude and serenity in the Sarabande and jaunty humor in the Bourees."

"...Carter Enyeart opened with Bach's unaccompanied Suite in G. Performing the six-movement work from memory, he immediately revealed both total command of the technical demands of the work and, thanks to that technical command, a broadly expressive interpretation, with flexible but sensitive tempo and beautifully sustained phrasing."

As Chamber Musician:

"Enyeart is a marvelously singing cellist whose gorgeous tone is complemented by an agile bow arm and meticulous phrasing."
Mickey Coalwell
The Kansas City Star

"The chief pleasure of their (Philadelphia String Quartet) playing was the natural musicality with which all four players articulate their phrases...the artistry of their recently acquired cellist a definite asset."
William Mann
The Times (London)

"Everything they (American Piano Trio) play is marked by expert musicianship, a polished sense of ensemble, and a vigorous commitment that draws the listener immediately into the musical discussion...it will be a pleasure to hear this fine group again."
John von Rhein
Chicago Tribune

"The evening was rounded off with a driving, emotionally saturated performance of Shostakovich's Piano Trio. With violinist Emanuel Borok, cellist Carter Enyeart and pianist Jo Boatright, the music came to life."

"...violinist Emanuel Borok, violist Barbara Hustis and cellist Carter Enyeart gave the local premiere of Mr. Schnittke's Trio for Strings. The Trio was given a searing performance that was equal parts muscle and beauty."
John Ardoin
Dallas Morning News

"...an unfailingly compelling reading of the work (Brahms Trio)...musical dialogue and interaction that is the hallmark of chamber music of the highest degree...individuality and virtuosity..."
Wayne Lee Gay

"Quartet Chicago was most at home with the elegiac and soulful Andante...Enyeart was moving in the cello solo that introduces the movement." (Brahms Opus 60)
