Reviews: 

From the Cello Octet Amsterdam website :

"… The Octet's playing is extremely colourful and precise, the expression of the dynamics goes hand in-glove with the poetical nature of Villa-Lobos'music. In the compositions of Marlos Nobre, all of them dedicated to the Octet, a true miracle comes about: an irresistible sensuality and an obsessive rhythm merge into a grandiose unity; classical and Brazilian influences are perfectly in balance." (E.K., Luister, Amsterdam)
