Press review

Virtuosi di Kuhmo invests all three works with a notable degree of dynamism. (...) Recommended.
Gramophone, April 1999

These are bravura performances, incisive and committed, beautifully shaded and with a wealth of textural subtlety. (...) Peter casaba's finely shaped interpretation of (Divertimento) must be one of the best currently available.
Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine, March 1999, Performance ***** / Sound ****

Bartók's Divertimento erklingt packend, stimmungsvoll und dynamisch reich differenziert.
Fono Forum, March 1999, Interpretation **** / Klang ****
