All the music in this eclectic programme reflects the phenomenal influence of gypsy music on both classical and jazz music in the 20th century – even when wearing smart ‘classical’ clothes, the music of the gypsies cannot disguise its honesty, directness and the heart beating inside the clothes.

• So here we have Bartók and Kodály, the two great Hungarian composers who made comprehensive studies of folk music, alongside the world of jazz, represented by John Lewis’s Django, and the Weather Report tracks.

• The music also has strong connections with Viktoria Mullova’s background. Viktoria Mullova hails from the Ukraine, where only two generations ago, her family lived simple lives,living off the land in a small village. The simple peasant qualities – calmness, honesty and
simplicity – are very much part of her. Although she has conquered the most sophisticated works of Western classical music, the music on this album shares something of her other side.

"She has already shown us that she can hold a Miles Davis tune. The violinist Viktoria Mullova shreds even more categories on this soulful collaboration with her husband, the cellist Matthew Barley, and a chamber group featuring the pianist Julian Joseph. ....the MJQ classic Django has never sounded quite so elegiac, and any doubts that the band can swing are laid to rest in the exuberent opener, For Nedim. Joseph’s playing throughout is a model of discretion, while Paul Clarvis and Sam Walton add subtle percussive colour. The band’s Prom will be essential listening." ****

The Sunday Times - 19 June 2011


              Performance *****           Sound *****
’It was a brilliant idea to combine seven Bartok Duos with music by Bratsch, the French Gypsy band, and jazz improvisations from Joseph and the two percussionists: the various musical elements are drawn into a creative symbiosis. The programme which looked bitty, adds up to a coherent sequence, with two numbers by Weather Report not that far away from from the world of Youssou N’Dour. All the performances have energy and imagination, and even though Kodaly’s Duo, passionately played by Mullova and Barley, might seem at a tangent to the rest, it makes perfect sense as the culmination of a beautifully crafted album."

Martin Cotton - BBC Music Magazine - September 2011
 


"The jazz leanings of her husband’s quartet, the Matthew Barley Ensemble, exert perhaps too great an influence over this set from violinist Viktoria Mullova, which mingles gypsy-influenced jazz compositions by the Modern Jazz Quartet and Weather Report with several of Bartók’s folk-derived pieces and Zoltan Kodály’s three-part "Duo for violin and cello...
The latter’s astringent, bare-wire tonalities are the standout here, aptly described by Barley as not so much classical influenced by gypsy music, as gypsy music with a smart set of clothes. There are rewarding moments elsewhere – notably in "For Nedim"
