Notes & Reviews:

"(This recording) features Wang in the first and third Brahms Piano Quartets in collaboration with the Amity Players, a Canadian trio of émigrés who, like Wang, are young and precociously gifted... The energy level in this recording is so high that at times you suddenly realize that the piano is being carried along with it, Wang breaking out of her role as musical referee to dive into the game... This is passionate, highly engaging music making, and should satisfy most who take it on; present company found it compelling enough that it was difficult to part company with this recording in order to go on to other things." -All Music Guide
