"Jouni Stenroos’s playing is clean, precise, and musical throughout this disc of Coste and Mertz. He avoids the indulgent romanticism this music often attracts and the result sounds natural and unmannered.
All the pieces are inventive and, as their titles suggest, picturesque. There is a strong feeling of the salon in the music’s rather showy rhetorical and sometimes sentimental gestures. Coste, in particular, in the pieces selected here, goes in for swooning romantic gestures and occasional musical garrulousness. Stenroos handles this side of the music very well. He does not ham it up, but treats it respectfully. His playing is a model of tastefulness."
