…the recordings [are] natural and true. Bob Attiyeh not only adheres to the simplest of recording equipment, but also insists on the concert recording “ambiance” and it is the combination of these two essential elements that leads to the achievement of such a natural effect. © 2014 Expo Music

Expo Music, September 2014

…in this recording…[Petteri Ivonen’s 1767 Gagliano violin] is allowed to sound natural, muscular, and very present…The piano itself has a glossy sweet sound and a natural resonance—a perfect balance.

…the balance works very well, and is not exaggerated at all, you can tell that the sound engineers wanted you to be able to imagine yourself sitting in the audience and hearing the natural beauty of the sound, rather than exaggerated studio effects. © 2014 Expo Music
