Press Quotes

“…a programme that leads off with a noteworthy performance of the late Violin Sonata… a robust interpretation that fully comes to terms with the sonata’s grim vision. Their meticulous attention to the score’s ever-shifting moods and express…ive turns gives their performance its distinction… His [Menuhin’s] intensity in the peak moments is impressive” … “Jeremy and Mookie Lee-Menuhin revive this nearly forgotten score [Symphony of Psalms] in a sensitive and compassionate performance.” … “[the Andantino] is realised to perfection by Rozhdestvensky and Menuhin” [DSCH Journal, Jan 2016]

“Rozhdestvensky and Menuhin are alive to the elusive principal characters of its three movements – respectively watchful, strenuous and increasingly maddened yet implacably disciplined … a disc that should be of outstanding interest to Shostakovich lovers” [Gramophone, Dec 2015]

“very effective performance from Sasha Rozhdestvensky and Jeremy Menuhin who are particularly adept at building up a real sense of tension through the long Finale… performed with such fine sense of ensemble…warmly recorded release” [BBC Music Magazine, April 2016]
