"Much to admire" about Quint, Bergmann and North Carolina Symphony performance

October 11, 2019

"Quint and Bergmann met for a performance of this very piece, so they brought considerably more experience to their reading here than might otherwise have been the case for such a comparative rarity, and it showed in the depth of understanding, the treatment of the score's many reflective beauties, and the unity of their approach."

"It’s a triumph from start to finish"

April 8, 2019

"Headlining the project are violinist Philippe Quint and pianist Marta Aznavoorian for Warner Classics. Certainly, one would be hard-pressed to find two finer advocates for this fare, with its mix of early-20th-century popular song forms, tangos, and jazz.
