Notes & Reviews:
MusicWeb International, April 2013
What a superb group of musicians!...The eight strings of the Australian Chamber Orchestra play with finesse and vitality such that they fear no comparisons with the competition, even the most prestigious.
Sunday Times, 21st April 2013
For a 35-minute work by a 14-year-old, this concerto is extraordinary - not especially memorable, maybe, but amazingly fluent and full of brilliant textures, which Tognetti and Leschenko make the most of in this spirited performance.
Gramophone Magazine, June 2013
We hear the [Octet] in all its fascinating detail, yet, with an overall sound that's finely blended...with splendid solo playing [in the Concerto], the result here is certainly exciting, and you may agree with me that the Concerto benefits from such creative engagement.
International Record Review, May 2013
The latest disc from the musicians of the Australian Chamber Orchestra is a winner...every note of this performance is lived, phrasing is always imaginative and, as with all the ACO's best work, there's a sense of these players rediscovering a familiar masterpiece anew.
BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
How to deal with the professionally astonishing but artistically dubious material is a problem...try to mould it into something more satisfying? The players here choose the second option, with fluctuating tempos and an unabashed enjoyment in the rather unimaginative passagework.
