"Altogether an intelligently laid-out disc, with interesting repertoire and magnificent playing and recording."

"I found Queyras' playing to be quite remarkable. Not only does he possess a formidable technique, his tone is consistently beautiful and his dynamic control superb." (Amazon.com)

"Jean-Guihen Queyras infuses all this technically demanding music with ardent expressiveness and dazzling rhythmic drive. He has an alert, vibrant tone which seems at first to steer him clear of sentiment, but the final track reveals a player with plenty of heart as well... Altogether an intelligently laid-out disc, with interesting repertoire and magnificent playing and recording."
BBC Music Magazine - March 2002

"...Jean-Guihen Queyras' performances are as impassioned and committed as technically mellifluous. He is sensitive to the tiniest inflection, playing with a lightness and clarity that fits hand in glove with the music's essential spirit." The Strad - April 2002

"Jean-Guihen Queyras has already been hailed for his 'unparalleled' interpretation of the work and listening to this superbly engineered recording you can easily hear why. In sum, this is a good Op. 8 [Kodály], witty, stylish, and for the most part extremely polished... All this music makes considerable demands on Queyras, who rises to each challenge with confidence and formidable skill."
Gramophone - February 2002
