“Playing with intensity”
- Olean Times Herald, NY


Extraordinary sense of solace and hard-won transcendence at the coda, magnificently played by Ivanov and Antimova”
“Ivanov brings a finely differentiated array of expression to this music… produces a big, rich tone, his idiomatic fruity timbre and astringent edge bringing exciting bravura to the tearaway coda…Ivanov alternates virtuosity and rich lyric lines in a tour de force.”
- Gramophone, UK

Cellist Kalin Ivanov plays with impeccable intonation, idiomatically telling phrasing, and projects a gratifyingly large and variegated tone… he and he pianist Elena Antimova are always on the same wavelength… I can smell the rosin coming from Ivanov’s bow, but with enough space that full-throated tone of his instrument registers fully at the music’s louder moments. His balance with Antimova’s piano is fine. One can hear the subtlety of her touch, voicing, and pedaling.

“Mr. Ivanov displayed solid, disciplined technique and a pure tone… A fine pianist, Ms. Antimova played brilliantly, with deep identification and riveting concentration.”

“The duo [K. Ivanov and E. Antimova] brings the work to its conclusion with a robust degree of fiery abandon. …clean and full-bodied with splendid performances from start to finish.”
