American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This program celebrates two winners of the German Music Competition in 2012. This organization offers support for the careers of its winners, and these brothers clearly deserve what they are getting. This program joins two of the liveliest and most technically agile cello sonatas. The Gerassimez duo takes fast tempos but brings out the subtleties of expression in both works to great effect. The Mendelssohn is beautifully controlled as well.
