"These recordings are brilliant, as is the playing of the Onyx Duo, who is bursting with playfulness and creative joy on this debut album. When has Maurice Ravel's Ma mère l'Oye ever been heard as beautifully, intimately and sonically as it is here? (...) Souvenirs is pure listening pleasure."

- Alain Steffen, pizzicato

"The Onyx piano duo (...) plays with extraordinary sensitivity, unrivalled precision and an unerring feel for subtle nuances. (...) shows a piano duo that is not only perfectly attuned to each other, but also makes music in a highly refreshing and infectious way. From Mozart to Barber, everything is played with nuance, at the highest technical level and with relish."

- Guido Krawinkel, Klassik heute
