All works prefaced by an introduction with music excerpts.
Fresh and vital, with cultivated emotion and a technically perfected
regard of detail, the recording captivates in virtuoso brilliance
and a wealth of colour. The way these two internationally acclaimed
masters of chamber music are able to differentiate offers a rich
fund of musical enjoyment. A feast for musical gourmets who are not
taken in by superficial gestures and who prefer to find pleasure in
an unmannered, noble art of making music."
- Süddeutsche Zeitung
A profound, well-structured and eloquent interpretation. The
musical ideas resulting from the analysis and their realisation
become an entity."
A completely convincing interpretation, the more so for having
such a feeling for the sound of the work."
