Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The Ravel is very effective, and he is not afraid to play a real pianissimo. The rest of this almost all-French program is played on the same high level of musicianship and technique. If you haven't heard this superb violist, this is a good introduction. His viola was made by Giuseppe Guadagnini in 1780. Excellent sound.

MusicWeb International, April 2013
I can congratulate Rysanov for his excellent playing, Dubugnon for at least one really excellent piece, and BIS for once again creating an exciting program blending old and new...[Wass's] contributions are simply phenomenal, with a softness of touch which makes one forget the piano is percussive.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2013
Rysanov is a remarkable string player; in his hands the viola's distinctive voice is explored throughout its range, with consistently beautiful variations of intensity and tone colour. And he and Wass show great sensitivity in finding the appropriate tempo and character for each item.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2013
Rysanov has previously demonstrated that there is far more to the instrument than Romantic brooding, but this disc finds him exploring that cliche...and the playing is utterly sublime, especially Rysanov's delicacy in upper registers and gossamer-like harmonics...The sense throughout is more of fine dark chocolate than sugar, and what (only just) prevents this becoming too sickly is the inclusion of Richard Dubugnon's Lied and, especially, Incanto.
