"Zukerman's viola tone is firm and rounded, and his intonation exemplary; Petri's playing is as fluent and reliable as we have come to expect of her and the orchestral support is lively if a little weighty at times.
Heberle's music is unashamedly lightweight and recalls the brilliant but superficial style of the many Diabelli variations which were popular in the first half of the nineteenth century. This attractive work is played with sparkle and elan by Michala Petri and should have a wide appeal. In the Trios and the Duo Petri is joined by Zukerman who plays violin in two of the works and viola in the other. All three pieces come off well...
To sum up, there is plenty to enjoy on this disc and admirers ofRead more these two gifted solo artists will not need to be reassured on that score."
