"This is an absorbing disc – new music which deserves to become standard repertoire." - 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." - The High Arts

"offers a fascinating musical journey, giving the works played real mastery without leaving behind the indispensable rigor of execution." - Opus HD

"The Jupiter String Quartet and pianist Bernadette Harvey bring us a standout disc of music for piano and strings...What a fine program this is! I enjoyed every minute, and found many new delights waiting every time I listened again." - Music for Several Instruments

"Performed with great sensitivity and attention to detail, this album marks an important addition to the recorded repertory of new chamber music." - EarRelevant
