Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
As for Bigelow's and Maurice's performances, they are tonally opulent and well recorded. I would have appreciated more punch and pep at the occasional expense of tonal fluidity. It is a blessing that this set and the Ehnes set, present the Duos in their original order.

Containing both the old and the new, this album features not only Béla Bartók's 44 Duos but also all the existing original field recordings made by Bartók in the early 20th century of the folk music that inspired them. The purpose of this album is to connect the listener to these original folk melodies. The field recordings appear here - for the first time together on one album - with permission from the varied sources that house them in Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary.
