Notes & Reviews:

"Pride of place on this disc goes to the Quintet, in which Pires and her colleagues achieve a stimulating combination of conviction and spontaneity. The result is exhilarating, an infectious freshet of melody that also has considerable depth...Some of the same approach finds its way into the performance of the Concerto...this is a distinguished acocunt of a perpetually enigmatic work." **** -Breckbill, BBC Magazine
