"Linda Wetherill's flute recital gives a feel of a steady upward spiritual journey."
"Flutist Linda, Professor at Adelphi University, who is a literal reservoir of music from across the world, is no imitator of sound. She has developed a repertoire which, judgeing by what connoisseurs of music have said of her, is remarkable for range and expressive richness."
"Even those with only a listening acuaintance of music must have found her music at Natarani endowed with exceptional beauty. "
In "Savitri", against the backdrop of an eerie slience, highlighted by musical notes, a mood of mysticism followed by serenity was created . . . Her basic desire was to communicate joy, generosity and the composer's delicate, abstract ideas.

TIMES OF INDIA, New Delhi
"Ms. Wetherill intrigued one with the wide range of sounds that Varese demands from the performer, and then when she passed to her own transcriptions of Bach's Violin Partita the real feast began. In Debussy's Syrinx, the hedonistic sensuous quality of the score was deliciously realized. On the other hand, Jolivet's Incantations took on the character of a duet with sinister overtones. It was a joy to hear each phrase begin and flow into the next one with such clarity and logical precision."
