Notes & Reviews:

"The playing is very fine - urgent and exciting without losing the subtety of Schubert's beautiful and breathtaking changes of harmony. If you want both finales back-to-back, this is the recording for you." - Althouse, ARG

'Clear the decks for paradise... the Florestans currently have the best all-round perspective on this singularly lovable work. A terrific recording is no hindrance either' (The Times)

'The Florestans make everything sound gloriously inevitable... the attractions of this immaculately balanced recording become well-nigh irresistible' (International Record Review)

'They show such complete control of every aspect of Schubert's masterpiece that they sweep away all rivals' (The Independent)

'Another superb performance then, penetrating, yet full of spirited spontaneity' (Gramophone)

'a performance as wonderfully incisive as its earlier rendition of the trio in B flat major... it represents Schubert performance at the highest level' (classicstoday.com)

'a performance full of intelligent, musicality and an uncomplicated directness that almost belies the accomplishment of the playing' (The Guardian)

'the ensemble has at last released its eagerly awaited performance of the great E flat... the players' clarity of vision in the long first movement doesn't prohibit their ability, throughout the subtlest of details of breath, balance and tone of voice, to create a sense of constant search and enquiry' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Tomes is exemplary and the excised portions are pure gold' (The Sunday Express)

'Pianist Tomes is not only blessed with a fluent technique... but also a true chamber musician's ear... The recorded sound is warm, close, and well balanced' (Fanfare, USA)

'The playing is very fine - urgent and exciting without losing the subtlety of Schubert's beautiful and breathtaking changes of harmony' (American Record Guide)

'All round, a flawless account' (bbc.co.uk)
