Notes & Reviews:

The disc features Antal Zalai, praised by Igor Oistrakh as 'an exceptional violinist who has a perfect technique, beautiful large tone, real musical finesse and maturity as well as a noble personality'. Joining him is József Balog, one of the most celebrated pianists of his generation and winner of the 2005 Annie Fischer Award.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Antal Zalai and Josef Balog are both excellent Hungarian musicians, and as native Hungarian speakers they have a clear interpretive advantage over musicians who do not speak Hungarian when playing Bartok.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
Sensitively judged interpretations of the two Sonatas...The Rhapsodies find both players in ebullient form projecting the music with grace and humour and avoiding unnecessary tempo fluctuations.
