Notes and Editorial Reviews

An interesting if disparate recital, dominated by a creditable account of Schoenberg’s masterly String Trio. The Schnittke is persuasively interpreted. Close sound emphasizes the presence of an audience, who will doubtless need no prompting to acquire this disc.

-- Richard Whitehouse, Gramophone [4/1998]
