. . . sublime . . . a meeting of the minds of two great artists who are at all times engaged on an intellectual as well as emotional level. There is all the beauty of Dumay's tone to be found here . . . and Pires's extraordinary subtlety of phrasing . . . [the final movement on this disc] provides a feeling of total expansiveness in its simplicity, with all the radiant breadth of a Sibelius symphony.
