'This is amazing violin playing of a kind of virtuosity I do not recall hearing from a period instrument player … no one who admires good violin playing will want to miss Elizabeth Wallfisch's crisp, rhythmic playing, her precise articulation or her impeccable intonation, or indeed her general command of the style and expressive content of this music' (Gramophone)

'Wallfisch invests every phrase with tingling, exuberant life' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Les timbres rayonnants et les phrasés soignés d'Elizabeth Wallfisch et Rachel Isserlis réchauffent et enveloppent' (Diapason, France)
