"... a work of great originality, daring, and disturbing power"

"searing ... a traumatized silence clung to the Fishman Space
auditorium ... Death casts a long shadow over the recent work of Mr.
Hersch, who lost a close friend to cancer while battling the disease
himself. But in 'On the Threshold of Winter' Mr. Hersch has given
himself the space to burrow past anger and incomprehension in search
of an art fired by empathy and compassion."
