CD cover ". . . Koelman's playing (in this new CD) is sinuous and impassioned, and from a purely technical view must be heard to be believed. The FCO . . . provides the kind of support one normally hears only from established continental ensembles."   William Yeoman, The West Australian  
"It's a recording well worth getting excited about - and for all the right reasons. And there is an extra frisson to the performance doubtless due to the recording being of live performances . . . ."   Neville Cohn, OZartsreview
