Notes and Editorial Reviews

"There is splendid definition and good perspective throughout the range. Jaap Schroder uses a Steiner from 1665 and very beautiful it sounds too, producing an almost veiled sound on the G string in the slow movement of the A minor. The brisk tempo takes some getting used to, though the artists relax just a little when it is established and Schroder infuses just the right amount of expressive rubato... there is much that is thought-provoking here, and much to admire as well, intelligent direction and accomplished solo playing.",-- Robert Layton, Gramophone "There is splendid definition and good perspective throughout the range.
