REVIEWS

Winner of the 1993 ABC Award for the Best Australian Recording
Top of the Top Ten Best Records 1993 The Age

"…a highly charged musical experience of extraordinary quality."
Tony Way
The Age December 1992

"…a 'must' for lovers of the cello"
John Carmody
Sun Herald January 1993

"…What makes this disc such a success is the rapport between these two artists. This is duo playing out of the top drawer…The range of espressive nuance from both players, separately and together, is really extraordinary - I had thought of Pereira as one of those golden-toned cellists, but this is only one of a huge variety of timbres he finds on this recording which, by the way, captures the performances superbly. I recommend this disc without reservation."
Andrew Ford
24 Hours February 1993

"…from an intuitively matched pair of musicians comes sensational playing…Lisa Moore excels as a colourist in both works."
Cyrus Meher-Homji
Soundscapes July 1993

"His (Pereira's) account of the Shostakovich is good by any standard, often crackling with excitement…The Schnittke however is quite superb, the stark and at times brutal aspects are so ideally realised, the intentional harsh sounds never underplayed and the final Largo is a moment of mixed despair and resignation. Technically it is brilliantly realised, and tempi are ideally chosen. Lisa Moore makes an admirable partner in an equally demanding role, light and shade so admirably judged."
David Denton
The Strad (UK) August 1993
