Notes and Editorial Reviews

Performance: ***** / Sound: ****
Rich pickings! Alkan and R Strauss Sonatas are given suitably grandiose performances. Bertrand and Amoyel complement each other superbly.

– BBC Music Magazine

“Underrated, like most of Bloch's music, they are played here with aristocratic dignity by Emmanuelle Bertrand.” – The Guardian

“The enthusiastic playing of Bertrand and Amoyel captures Saint-Saëns’ characteristic youthful vigour and gleeful virtuosity.” – Classic FM Magazine
