'The intensity and physical power of the performances had the sell-out audience gripped from start to finish'.

'A powerfully engaging performance of a great work, performed with great energy and insight'.

'A visceral Grosse Fuge, to end an evening of chamber music’s most monumental offerings, performed with impressive power and commitment'.
