Naxos offer a winning combination here, in performances wonderfully fresh and alive. Takako Nishizaki’s timbre, though not large, is admirably suited to Beethoven and she is in complete rapport with Jandó, who is in excellent form. The recording is most naturally balanced and the acoustic is spacious without clouding the focus.

Canberra Times (Australia)

"the playing is strongly projected and warmly expressive and with Naxos offering such fine and newly recorded performances at economy prices these discs are well worth investigating"

Classic CD

"they are particularly good at bringing out the dry and delicate wit that abounds in the music"
