The Audiophile Audition

“The virtuosic performances are uniformly sweet and captivating. The repertoire ranges freely from a light-hearted trifle by Nino Rota, a reverie by Amy Beach and a neoclassic showpiece by Ferenc Farkas to more substantial sets by Darius Milhaud and Gunther Schuller. There is also a lovely discovery by the contemporary composer Joseph Turrin and a potpourri on Rossini’s Barber of Seville by Giulio Briccialdi (1818-1881).

Recorded at the Purchase(New York) College Conservatory of Music, the sound has wonderful warm bloom without an exceptional sense of space that repays higher volumes, making for a good light workout that will test the timbral accuracy of any music system. The affectionate, authoritative notes by the Quintet add greatly to the listening pleasure.”
