Mozart, Concerto K622 with the San Francisco Symphony
" Clarinetist Gray is a musician right to the heart...his inspired phrasing made the music alive with conversation. His performance was an exemplar of superior American wind playing."
—San Francisco Chronicle

Santa Monica Symphony
" Gray proved a lively soloist, technically at ease and affectionately shaping the singing lines. His playing of the second movement of the Weber Concerto had particular beauty, with single-breathed phrasing and hushed legato."
—Los Angeles Times

Aspen Music Festival
" Gray displayed strong control and rich softness of tone in the Poulenc Sonata. Brooks Smith's accompaniment throughout was perfection; his lightness of touch never obscured Gray. The audience loved their Poulenc!"
—Aspen Times

Japan Tour 1990
" Guest Artist Gary Gray expressed the romanticism of the Brahms' E flat Clarinet Sonata with persuasive power at last night's Tsuda Hall Concert. He made an excellent case for his instrument as a solo vehicle and contributed much to the success of the All-Brahms Evening."
—Tokyo Monthly Concert Review

San Leandro Symphony
" Gray seemed one with his instrument during the Clarinet Concerto...his performance was flawless."
—Oakland Tribune
