Elizalde has been praised for “compelling artistry and power” by the Seattle Times. He has collaborated with leading musicians such as Chang and violinist Ray Chen, and is a member of the New Trio with Andrew Wan and Patrick Jee. The New Trio has won the Fischoff and Coleman National Chamber Music Competitions and the Harvard Musical Association’s Arthur W. Foote Prize.
