James A. Altena
Fanfare, May 2016

…what richness! Violinists Daniel Rowland and Priya Mitchell, cellist Julian Arp, and pianist Luis Magalhães are a veritable dream team for opulence of tone, precision of execution, and totality of interpretive engagement and emotional communication. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

Daniel Coombs
Audiophile Audition, January 2016

Both of these works are a bit of a rarity and they do both meander just a bit. However, this is lovely music played very well by the forces on this recording. Korngold is a composer whose music deserves to be explored more thoroughly. © 2016 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

Elliot Fisch
American Record Guide, January 2016

Magalhaes plays the raucous and extremely difficult opening passages easily, with excellent tone and expressiveness. …the playing is excellent.

If you are not familiar with Korngold’s music besides his movie scores or his 1920 opera Die Tote Stadt, this excellent recording is a good introduction. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Dominy Clements
MusicWeb International, September 2015

The live performances on this recording are all the more remarkable in that the musicians are far from being an established group. The unity and synergy apparent from this recording makes it rather special, and with good sound quality and barely any perceptible audience noise this is a release that can be purchased with confidence. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Michael Schulman
The WholeNote, September 2015

The Piano Trio…receives a vigorous, upfront performance, recorded live, as was the Suite, with well-deserved applause at its conclusion. © 2015 The WholeNote Read complete review

Blair Sanderson, August 2015

…violinists Daniel Rowland and Priya Mitchell, cellist Julian Arp, and pianist Luis Magalhães play the Suite and the Piano Trio with passion and sensitivity, and give their series an auspicious beginning. © 2015 Read complete review

Jeff Simon
The Buffalo News, August 2015

The Suite for two violins, cello and piano left hand is a wild, flamboyant and extravagant piece of rare instrumentation that deserves as much stubborn re-affirmation as willing musicians want to give it. © 2015 The Buffalo News Read complete review
