Jonathan Freeman- Attwood, producer

(... ) So, my lasting impression, having dissected every note of the music, is of a cornucopia of hidden gems; hidden because history has under rated, misunderstood and bowdlerized the collective meaning of these works by assuming that it is an uneven genre - but then so are the symphonies and even the operas!

From my 'privileged' position as listener-inchief, I can tell you it is because no pair can make such transparent and difficult music sound so effortless, elegant, witty, emotionally persuasive and enjoyable.
