Notes & Reviews:
This is the Schubert Ensemble's second disc devoted to works by George Enescu, a composer who has been somewhat neglected over the years but who's true talents are more and more appreciated during a recent surge in interest in his music. Included on this disc is the Schubert Ensemble's own edition of the Piano Trio, arrived at after close study of the composer's heavily annotated manuscript.
Gramophone Magazine, October 2013
A splendidly idiomatic performance from the Romanian violinist Remus Azotei, light of touch but deep of perception...Enescu is capable of writing some complicated, even dense textures but the outcome is lucid, and lucidly recorded.
Sunday Times, 15th December 2013
The reconstructed piano trio and, above all, the fine mature quintet prove undeservedly neglected in the Schubert Ensemble's committed and passionate performances.
