The joyful virtuosity and stylish musicianship that Tomas Cotik and Tao Lin brought to their superb cycle of Schubert’s violin-and-piano works for the Centaur label happily permeate their cycle of Mozart’s sonatas
Overall, these two discs featuring Cotik must be regarded as among the finest performances for their consistent artistry and idiomatic grasp
true treasure…one of the latest gems to emerge from the season

Also in the interpretation of Mozart´s sonatas, Cotik´s excellent performance and perfect technique stand out in the particularly brilliant articulations
His interpretation of Bach’s sonatas and partitas his newest album in should add a notch to his reputation as a stellar violinist
The versions are optimal due to the stylistic understanding and the instrumental excellence of the admirable violinist.
Cotik makes Kreisler seem almost smarmy, Isabelle Faust almost mannered, and Julia Fischer as though she´s filed down the detail
unusual depth and broad compass…absolutely brilliant… unmistakable vitality…optimally recorded

without a doubt, an album to get excited and listen to continuously. Pure excellence. Essential!
