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.
