Read the latest reviews about the CD

“…this warmly recorded and passionately played new disc. Iruzun and Coull need fear no comparison (Beach’s Romance)… Marlos Nobre’s Poema XXI is a delight, as is the disc as a whole.”
-Guy Rickards, Gramophone

“Brazilian pianist Clélia Iruzun has been joined by the Coull Quartet for a wonderful selection of ‘Treasures from the New World’…Iruzun plays with suitable passion and the strings match with rich-toned energy.”
-Nick Boston, Classical Notes

“Iruzun integrates with the quartet seamlessly and throughout the ensemble is impressive. The luscious Adagio (Oswald) is as fine as anything from a similar genre from its time…a disc with estimable quality that is well worth returning to.”
– Simon Mundy, Classical Music Magazine

“Iruzun and the Coull Quartet perform with passionate fervour…Iruzun is spectacularly deft in the fine-spun piano lines (Oswald).  Each of the works on the disc is given a thoughtful and sympathetic reading, and the sound quality is first-rate.”
-Stephen Greenbank, MusicWeb
