Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, July 2012
Tognetti's masterstroke is to have fully assimilated all the characteristics of Grieg's scoring...Transferring this procedure to the Quartet serves to enhance dramatic impact on its music narrative...The Australian Chamber Orchestra delivers playing of incredible passion and precision. Tognetti's inspired direction brings every movement to life...A triumph in every respect.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2012
The Australian Chamber Orchestra is renowned for its crisp, clean playing, superb ensemble and intonation, and vivacious style...[The Elegiac Melodies and Holberg Suite] have dozens of rivals but, while one might find equally fine renditions, I doubt there are many better ones. Excellent sound, as usual from this label.

International Record Review, June 2012
The String Quartet is] a striking piece, driven and agitated on the one hand, sweetly lyrical on the other. The performers give it vitality and beauty and a programmatic narrative which compelling. The original solo lines are sometimes left as they were, rather poignantly so in the dramatic first movement...the Australians offer a spirited and sensitive account [of the Two Elegiac Melodies].
