“The Arpeggione Sonata in this arrangement… caught me unawares. …Shaham brings out the lyrical side of Schubert's inspiration, especially in the slow movement. Still more natural is the D major Sonata… which takes the translation of the piano part onto the guitar much more in its stride. Söllscher makes his instrument sing as effortlessly as Shaham's violin... The assorted dances and song transcriptions which make up the rest of the collection are all a delight in their sensitive rubato and phrasing... Not one for the purists, but who cares?”
