"This is an exquisitely played feast of Hungarian folk inspired chamber pieces. The recording of these works is outstandingly clear and focused. Special kudos to cellist Maria Kliegel who invests this disc with superb performances. She infuses the melancholic sections with a sad lyricism that transports them into the realm of the profound. A beautiful disc of affecting music."
"Kliegel plays with passion and virtuosity, and so do her partners. Naxos gives them all a particularly resonant ambience, which works wonders with the piano...Everything is impressively unified and played to the hilt by both artists, who are beautifully attuned to Kodaly's quirky but exciting effects. The piano in the first three numbers is marvelously manhandled by Jando...worth more than discs two or even three times the price."
