Audio Notes, William Nichols, The Clarinet Magazine, USA. September 2003
Nominee for release of the year.
The performances are world class. Estellés is a clarinetist of the highest accomplishment. He is a naturally fluent and poetic player who communicates remarkably well subtle shadings of musical character and expression. His tone is limpid and beautifully controled throughout its compass, and he brings to the listener in a most convincing manner…. The Orpheus Quartet delivers stunning performances of these works. The blend, balance and tonal sheen of this ensemble, and its like-minded approach to music-making place among world-class quartets.
Enthusiastically recommended disc
