Notes & Reviews:

""What we shared was astonishment -- and joy," wrote violinist Sigiswald Kuijken in his introductory note to this disc... the "joy" referred to is immediately apparent in their playing. Though best known for performing on period instruments, the Kuijkens perform here on modern instruments with tremendous energy and vivacity, though with only a discrete touch of vibrato. Indeed, it is this quality of joy, of the sheer pleasure in making music together, that most distinguishes the Kuijkens' performances from all others... Recorded in immediate and evocative SA sound... this disc is a strong pick for any fan of Beethoven's chamber music." -All Music Guide
