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.

American Record Guide

"we must conclude - as we usually do with Naxos - that this is a good buy"

Con Brio! (US)

"A perfectly balanced ensemble, vibrant yet chaste in its execution"


"I'd call this a real bargain"
