    Resumo

    "This is a fine traversal of Stravinsky’s output for violin and piano from two of Portugal’s most distinguished chamber musicians. It is particularly welcome because it eschews fireworks for their own sake. Virtuosity is there, certainly, but what I particularly value here is a sense of intimacy, of mellowness of sound, which is the more surprising since it was recorded in the Cartuxa church in Caxias (just outside Lisbon), hardly an intimate space.

    There is a sense of unhurriedness about these performances that makes one consider them in a different light. Even in the more ostentatiously vivacious movements, such as the Tarantella or the Scherzo of the Suite italienne, there is a concentration on the depth of the sound rather than an interest only in musical sparks flying, and the fine balance between violin and piano also contributes greatly to this. It is necessary nonetheless to point out a few technical highlights, such as Bruno Monteiro’s gorgeous harmonics in the Sinfonia and the light, flowing touch in the Scherzo from the Divertimento based on The Fairy’s Kiss or, on the part of João Paulo Santos, the deftness of the cimbalom-like repeated notes in the ‘Cantilène’ and the chuntering barrel-organ imitation in the ‘Eglogue I’ from the Duo concertant.

    Following a beautifully shaded account of the Three Pieces from The Firebird (in particular the sparkling Scherzo), we end with the ‘Danse russe’ from Petrushka, which screws the inexorable fairy-tale tension up to the maximum, almost as though resuming the entire scenario in one piece. A very fine recording."

    Gramophone, Ivan Moody

    *****

    " (…) this new recording stands as the most completely authentic collection to have ever been issued. It is splendid recorded; It is the intelligent and profoundly musical approach from this gifted violinist and his admirable partner that is so impressive. Technically flawless, this is one of the Records of the Year."

    Musical Opinion, Robert Matthew-Walker

    *****

    "The violinist’s playing is immensely imaginative and rhythmically precise, so that the moods are worked out very sharply. (…)With technically and expressively outstanding performances and a good sound recording, this Etcetera production is highly recommendable."

    Pizzicato, Remy Franck

    *****

    "Bringing lesser-known Stravinsky into the spotlight, it offers a sterling service to the repertoire. The recording is excellent, beautifully present and with just the right distance between violin and piano. Full and informative notes complete a fabulous release. (…) Stravinsky’s music shines eternal in these often revelatory performances by Monteiro and Santos."

    Fanfare, Colin Clarke

    "Their rapport is evident in their confident anticipation and blending of sound. Monteiro’s playing is as pin-point precise as Stravinsky would wish, and his tone has a wiriness and astringency entirely appropriate to this repertoire. Production values are high, with good notes by Bruno Monteiro, and a very clear recording."

    MusicWeb International, Michael Wilkinson

    "If you want to face all of Stravinsky's sensual spirit with a solo instrument, you need maneuverability, you need to master a dazzling range of expressions - violinist Bruno Monteiro definitely leaves nothing to be desired and he can count on pianist João Paulo Santos as a sovereign partner. (…) one can think that Stravinsky composed all this for these two experienced chamber musicians from Portugal."

    Klassik Heute, Stefan Pieper
