Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
It is quite fascinating to be introduced to this classic duo as it might have sounded from the years 1795 to 1845. It is an important aspect of music history as representing the appearance of the double bass as a soloist and partaker in the chamber music idiom as something besides a basso continuo. The transcriptions are also full of interest. The performances are friendly and musically sensitive. Both players revel in quietly impressive virtuosity and manage to make this highly unusual program an enjoyable musical, as well as technical, experience.
