'This attention to the individual character of Mozart’s lines (made) this performance immediately stand out'.
'A truly bleak and unsettling performance, stripping away any veneer of safety its relative popularity might bring'.
'Tamestit made the melody sing, and Chorzelski on second viola, provided sympathetic support'.
'After the existential despair of the Shostakovich, this was a reassuring and life-affirming end to the evening'.
