Played with a thrilling iron-fist-in-velvet-glove touch by the Vertavo Quartet, it was a miracle of stylistic light-footedness.
The whole concert was treasurable, the musicianship impeccable, and over all shone the extraordinary beauty of the Vertavo players' tone.
... the Vertavos created fireworks with their tangible joy in playing: it is moments like these that make music truly magical
... what impresses most is the integrity and imagination ... With phenomenal expressive flexibility, the Vertavo moved from warmest sensuality to knife-edge bitterness
... the Norwegians with their flair, their physicality and their communicative urgency, were the most compelling chamber ensemble I have heard in years
