5.0 out of 5 stars energy and warmth, 12 Aug 2002
If you are unused to listening to music of this sort this CD is a wonderful way to enter deeper into a beautiful musical world. The playing seems to me faultless and its intensity staggering. The contrasts between the energetic and sometimes strident sections and the delicately ethereal backdrops are marvellously reproduced and at times it's fascinating to hear the distinctive Hungarian folk harmonies portrayed with such naturalness by these immensely talented musicians. You might gather I recommend it!
