Notes & Reviews:

Occupying prominent positions in ensembles such as the Gewandhausorchester and the Berlin Philharmonic doesn't necessarily guarantee the sensitivity, understanding and desire to find one's own interpretation that this ensemble shows us on their debut Genuine CD, Phantasy. They've won awards such as ARD, Deustcher Musikwettbewerb and Concourt de Geneve.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Schumann's boundless imagination led him to explore aspects of form, rhythm, harmony, and even the nature of art itself. I think of Carnaval, which has passages that make the listener wonder what key we're in. The Schumann pieces on these programs have that adventurous spirit and complement the modernist aspects of the other works. Marianni plays Schumann's Piano Quartet with the perfect mix of rambunctious energy and elegant refinement. Martinu's Piano Quartet is typical Martinu - imaginative and playful.
