Jonathan Valin of TAS in July/August 2013
2013-07-01
“A chamber music lover’s dream come true, Edward Pong’s R2Rs of fine young musical talents (for example, Rostropovich Competition medalist Sietse-Jan Weijenberg’s Brahms Sonata No.1 is worthy of the late Janos Starker, one of his teachers) are Mercury-like in their presence”

Testimonial of renowned recording engineer Michael Thompson on the recording of Sietse-Jan & Yun-Yang playing Beethoven & Rachmaninov Sonatas
2013-03-15
The Overall Sound:
The sound is very smooth and warm but with just the right amount of attack and definition. The low to mid range frequencies have an amazing amount of power and subtlety.

The Recording Process:
The microphone placing is well chosen allowing a beautiful spread and depth of sound and the ideal acoustic can be heard. The monitoring equipment used must be of a high standard to have produced such a well balanced recording.

The Result:
The recording is of such a high quality and well produced that after a few minutes one just forgets it is a recording and listens to the great music making; simply the best recording of this type of music I have heard.

The Strad Magazine reviews Sietse-Jan & Yun-Yang CD!
2012-04-01
Just out – April 2012 issue of CD reviews: “Young Dutch cellist Sietse-Jan Weijenberg gives a real emotional roller coaster of a reading of Rachmaninoff’s Sonata” “Intensely felt rubato in the first movement lends the cello’s extended notes a feeling of infinite space, and the Andante is played with convincing passion”

“Weijenberg plays a 1707 Guarneri cello with a vibrant, rich tone that adds to the exhilarating opening to the finale.”
