"These interpretations have only confirmed my observation, namely that it is only via first class performances that less known composers can get discovered. All the contributors to the recording are first-class artists and they devote all their knowledge and talent to the quality shaping and mediation of the pieces." (...) "I can only praise Péter Szabó for his intense, deeply felt and spirited cello performance" (...) "Péter Szabó deserves extra credit for arranging the program of the CD and for assisting in its production."
