Classic FM Magazine

“opulently recorded”

Gramophone Magazine

July 2008

“The sound of this disc has an ample resonance, yet with little loss of clarity; it suits the group's generous expressive style. The deep feeling they bring to movements such as the Adagio of No 6 and the first Allegro of No 4 belies any lingering thoughts of Mendelssohn as a superficial composer.”
