Press Quotes

2018 Gramophone Magazine ‘Critics Choice’ (David Gutman)

MusicWeb International, a Record of the Year, 2018

“This is a valuable addition to the discography and it’s played with real conviction… this is a praiseworthy release.” (MusicWeb International)

“…there can be nothing but praise for the performances by Sasha Rozhdestvensky and Viktoria Postnikova (mother and son, linked by the recently late Gennadi Rozhdestvensky), played with conviction, technical ability and evident rapport, and beautifully recorded into the bargain, the instruments immediate, well-balanced and faithfully captured. Presentation and annotation are also excellent.” (Classical Source, *****)
