“The version of the second Sonata is persuasive, where the symphonic structure of the work is wrapped in pure elegance.”
Amadeus, Italy

“Ormezowski has a fine expressive tone… Levy is technically on top of this demanding music. The CD itself offers good, well-recorded performances. Impressive highlights – an intensely dramatic account of Op 38’s quasi menuetto that emphasises its wistful, questioning character.”
Gramophone, UK

“An astounding CD for its quality…The interpretation is excellent: the cello predominates, in presence, delicately over the piano, and the sonorous impression is unsurpassable. The brilliance of the end is dazzling. The version of the Sonata No. 2 is precious: I will only mention the careful preparation of the end of the 1st movement, and the sensitive – unordinary – ‘pizzicatos’ of the ‘Adagio’. Both the Italian cellist and the pianist dominate the matter with agility, plenty of musicality and good style.”
Mundoclásico, Spain
