"As well as being a fine violinist, his gifts as a composer/transcriber exhibit great promise. ..

Like Ricci, Marillier has mastered many of the virtuosic techniques required for this sort of music. Clear, well-focused harmonics, ricochet bowing and beauty of tone are especially evident. This is rhythmically alert playing, energized and vital. Lyrical sections are delivered with passionate, ardent fervour. Rubato is always subtly applied. The waltz-theme at the end is delightful....  Marillier shows great resourcefulness and flair in his transcriptions"- Web international Music,  3 April 2014
