[Maria João Pires]: . . . these are clearly five top-notch soloists working in a chamber context, with all the competitive collaboration that implies, occasionally playing fast and loose with Schumann's instruction. The generous Snape acoustic also plays its part, lending a characteristic glow to the sound, creating another performance that commands the attention from first to last.
