|Review by Laura Rónai, Fanfare, May/June 2007|
"Fortunately for us, Jan Ostrý and the M. Nostitz Quartet have decided to give [these small gems] a
new lease on life. They do so with complete conviction and the happy disposition that is so fitting for
the music. Each phrase is caressed with loving grace. Even though he is portrayed with a silver instrument
inside the CD's booklet, the flutist's instrument has a woody tone, relaxed and liquid, as it should be.
The sound is never pushed, metallic, nor brilliant for the sake of being brilliant. Ostrý plays with verve,
and is obviously having a great time with his part. The strings share his mood, and provide an equally
beautiful framework for his flights of imagination. The alternation between string and flute quartets works
perfectly, and one setting serves to rest the ears from the other, creating a pleasing balance."
