Reviews

‘In the hands of the splendid team assembled here, the effect is enormously exhilarating. As well as virtuosity from all, there is an uncommon purity of intonation and the kind of tonal nuance that makes it clear that sensitivity, not exhibitionism, is the ruly factor, though the players respond with evident zest to Rossini’s flights of ebullience. … Very strongly recommended.’(Sonate a quattro) Gramophone

‘superbly played here, with first-class unanimity and the utmost finesse’ (Duetto) Gramophone
