"...Almond laid out the theme, and on the repeat of the phrase deMaine followed with a stylishly ornamented echo. The contemplative third movement, marked affettuoso, was indeed affecting as a tender duet for violin and cello and showed off a sensitive rapport between Almond and deMaine. The last movement, allegro assai, highlighted just what a wonderful artist deMaine is. His clear sound, immaculate intonation, and tremendous musicianship were riveting."
