"... The Fine arts Quartet and Cristina Ortiz provide beautifully articulated accounts of both works ..."
Guy Rickards - International Piano magazine - January/February 2014
"... Very strongly recommended."

"A gripping performance of Saint-Saëns’s Piano Quartet, sparkling account of the early Piano Quintet and sublime Barcolle make a superlative disc from the Fine Arts Quartet and Christina Ortiz" *****

I do not hesitate to recommend this disc ..."
