“… decisively gifted with a unique and individual voice. [Dr. Christopher Kaufman’s] self motivation is complete… he has assembled an astonishing catalogue of characteristic works all bristling with force, energy, as well as tender expressiveness.”                     

— Yehudi Wyner – Pulitzer Prize Winner 2006
