Notes & Reviews:

After the first album with French cello music and the very successful recording of the Haydn Cello Concertos, Harriet Krijgh continues with the pearls of German-romantic cello literature: the recording of Brahms' cello sonatas.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Here are two of the greatest cello sonatas of the romantic literature played by two lovely young women in convincing and stylish performances. It is particularly evident in the E-minor Sonata. By the time Brahms wrote the F-major Sonata he was a better-balanced composer.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
Krijgh and Amara are assured. There is expressive strength here, coupled with verve and clear thinking about structure and melodic contour.
