'Nepomnyashchaya and Egarr are vivid advocates of music that is all about hedonistic enjoyment.'
'One hears both the individual voices and the harmony, how everything fits together into a whole ... The result is duo playing of a very high quality.'
'... eloquent and sometimes almost improvisatory performances.'
BBC Radio 3 'Record Review'
