Mikhail Gurewitsch writes: “We would like to present to you fresh and new interpretations of two of the most important works of chamber music in Russian musical history….While taking into account the original intentions of the composer, we aim to free the artistic core of a piece of work and capture musically the life attitudes of a younger generation.”
“Technically and musically, the playing of this young German-based ensemble is exceptional, bringing soulful loveliness to one beautiful phrase after another in a way that, while searching deep into the music, always sounds fresh and spontaneous.”
“His performance is clean, rhythmical, faithful to the score and very well disciplined. It's exciting in the last movement and charming, without ever being arch, in the 'Waltz'. The players are a responsive group and produce a convincing and sensitively shaped account of the 'Elegy'. In short, this is very fine, with fresh, spirited playing that is likely to provide plenty of enjoyment.”
