Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij hits the Fusebox Festival with strings attached
DAILY Music  April 26, 2010, by Austin Powell

Music Story  February 11, 2000, by Greg Beets
"...The full orchestra will include musicians from the Austin Symphony Orchestra, the Austin Lyric Opera, and the UT School of Music.

Tosca/Alberto & Yasmin The Ritz/El Sol y la Luna, January 4
Music Review  January 12, 2001, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Tosca/Alberto & YasminThe Ritz/El Sol y la Luna, January 4 At 7pm on a Thursday evening, the night Austin's weekend begins, Sixth Street is still a sleeping giant: lights out, doors closed, a slice of Roppolo's because Hoek's is just coming to life. Upstairs at the Ritz, it's even sleepier, the stage empty and Tosca himself -- longtime local accordionist Glover Gill -- entertaining a couple of people at the bar..."

Austin Chamber Music Center: Is that a bow in your pocket, or ... ?
For ACMC's next concert, Hot Enough for Ya, the aim is clear: Let's talk about sex
Arts Story  November 9, 2007, by Michael Kellerman
"...To carry off its theme, the center has engaged Austin's Tosca String Quartet, which has shaped a unique and inventive career of its own that extends beyond the normal boundaries of chamber music. As Schumann reminds us: "Tosca has been there, onstage with David Byrne, amidst thousands of screaming fans – much like the crowds Liszt drew at his prime in the 19th century..."

The New Rage
Voxtrot finally conquers the LP
Music Story  May 18, 2007, by Darcie Stevens
"...The sweat and fury of intensive prerecording rehearsals coupled with the finesse of producer Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave, Depeche Mode) and the beauty of Austin string quartet Tosca (see "Tosca: Indie Rock's Orchestra") has hardened Voxtrot for a full-frontal attack on a fickle yet adoring media and burgeoning international following. Creeping out from the copious lyrics and ethereal arrangements is the unblinking eye of invincibility...."

Tosca are no Slackers, Pong bounces back, the Dicks still hate the police, and Ken Lieck finds a new journalist pal in this week's "Dancing."
Music Column  July 6, 2001, by Ken Lieck
"...With the 10th anniversary of Slacker behind him, it's time for director Richard Linklater to look toward the future, and he's doing that with Tosca along for the ride. The local string quartet has provided the working soundtrack, composed mostly of Glover Gill originals, for Linklater's new film Waking Life, which has been picked up by Fox Searchlight with hopes of a New York/L.A./Austin release sometime this fall..."

Rhythm is King
Music Review  June 24, 1999, by Jay Hardwig
"...Next stop: Tosca, who are plying their exquisite melancholy in the ramshackle red funk of the Ritz Lounge. The septet would fit cleanly into the finest recital halls, but somehow tonight's match is perfect..."

Big Star 'Third' Concert
Honoring tragic 2010 non-SXSW headliner and Big Star guiding light Alex Chilton
Music Story  March 16, 2012, by Adam Schragin
"...This year, Big Star's legend gets added perspective with a SXSW documentary about the band called Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me (see "The Ballad of Big Star," Screens, March 9) combined with a performance of Third/Sister Lovers by a band featuring "musical director" Chris Stamey, as well as members of REM, the Posies, and more. The performance gets a local infusion through the Tosca String Quartet, who've been practicing along with the album since Stamey first got in contact with them in the fall to prepare...."

Why Chamber Music?
For the folks who play it, it's the intimacy and democracy and unity and fun
Arts Story  July 11, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...So with chamber music in full flower, it seems an apt time to ask what it is that makes the music so enduring and why musicians are so devoted to it. Offering their takes are two artists with notable experience in the field and enthusiasm for it: Michelle Schumann, artistic director of the Austin Chamber Music Center and award-winning pianist who has performed at Tanglewood, the Banff festival of Music and Sound, and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and Ames Asbell, founding member of the Tosca String Quartet and a nationally renowned violist who has accompanied David Byrne on two world tours..."

American Repertory Ensemble
Figuring dance and music to be great tastes that taste great together, American Repertory Ensemble aims to bring those art forms together in an organizational peanut butter cup
Arts Story  February 17, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...Together, they hatched the idea of this cross-disciplinary ensemble developing programs of shorter works from Stravinsky and Brahms to Costello and, well, Deemer, as well as from Balanchine to Robbins to Justin, and touring them nationally and internationally. Joining ARE's roster of artists for its inaugural season of concerts at One World Theatre, free performances for students of the American Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive at UT, and a summer tour to Amsterdam and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival are the Tosca String Quartet, pianist Michelle Schumann, and 10 dancers from across the country...."
