Reviews on Volume 1:
"The performances are richly responsive and tastefully phrased, the recording sound excellent"
- Gramophone, February 2009
"Hanssler has done this recording proud: every detail is caught to perfection."
- The Strad, May 2007
"Realised with astonishing clarity, ...an enthralling reading.
Where this new account scores is in the with which Azoitei and Stan suffuse poetic
means with musical ends... In short, a superb disc."
- International Record Review, April 2007
"Azoitei and Stan believe in this music wholeheartedly and convey its various
aspects with such apparent ease that I find it impossible not to be totally carried along by it.
In short, they perform with rare distinction to do Enescu proud. Consequently, in due course,
this recording should be a strong candidate for admission to the Classical Hall of Fame".
- Fanfare Magazine, Spring 2008
"Remus Azoitei and Eduard Stan, who in this fabulous recording present the first
of the two instalments with works for violin and piano, follow
Enescu's guidelines in exemplary manner."
- Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 21 April 2007
