- The ArtsDesk
"The playing by the Jupiter String Quartet and Bernadette Harvey at the piano is poised, precise and elegant. These are demanding pieces that don’t just rely on a handful of technically skilled players but also, as the title of the release suggests, on imaginative musical insights. The musicians involved in this splendid project seem to possess both."
