"The music here has all of the passion, elegance, and melodic craftsmanship that characterizes Turina’s best work. As with previous releases in this ongoing series, the performances are excellent. Jordi Masó’s confident keyboard playing is a known quantity from his discs of the composer’s solo piano works, and here he’s joined by Eva León, an excellent violinist who sounds every bit as comfortable in the idiom. A wonderful release."

"...We’re fortunate in having a number of recommendable versions of Turina’s works for violin…But with Naxos we have the admirable Jordi Masó, so deeply immersed in this repertoire, who lends invaluable and expressively bright support. You won’t be disappointed by this Naxos newcomer; the music is served up with panache and passion."

"...A warm sound for a luminous music, Eva León displays a round violin timbre, is restrained with her vibrato, and is gentle and cadenced as it should be performed in the chamber music of Turina. She is well-accompanied at the piano by Jordi Masó." ****

"...Two sparkling young Spanish musicians do a nice job of chanelling the melodies and textures conjured for violin and piano by composer Joaquín Turina (1882–1949). Two sonatas are part of this piece-work disc that richly evokes the rhythms and dances of the Iberian peninsula. Violinist Eva León has a mesmerizingly silken touch."
