Notes & Reviews:

"The two Hoelshcers make a fine pair and play well together. The Berlin Radio Symphony amply supports them." - Bauman, American Record Guide

BBC Music Magazine
The soloists, brothers and sister, are thoroughly assured... Both Concertantes demand partnership rather than competition between the violins and display some striking colours - a slow movement accompanied only by divided cellos and basses, both violins double-stopping to create a dense solo texture, and moments of stratospheric pyrotechnics. All four of these substantial works are new to the catalogue, and very welcome indeed.
