‘One wished to be able to embrace all ten of the cellists individually for their magnificent playing.’
‘The first movement was a delight for the ears. The sound streams through the entire orchestra, whilst the sharp articulations and the finely-judged crescendi ensure scintillating moments.’
‘virtuoso and fabulously beautiful string playing’ […] ‘the sound of the full tutti here seemed to be deeper, fuller and more sonorous than was previously the case’
