Press Quotes

“…the duo negotiate a beautifully modulated account [of ‘Frauenliebe und -Leben, Op. 42’] gilded by McNaught’s finely-judge rubato and ear for Schumann’s telling countermelodies… the collision between the Beamish and Robert’s Op. 42 – a rewarding and endlessly fascinating interaction” (BBC Music Magazine)
