“It is first and foremost a huge musicality that cannot be taught as the player must be born with it. It is clear that the inspirational impulses coming from each member of the ensemble carry on creating a growing spiral of spells and beautify every phrase. Then it is the love of sound and the desire to immediately coincide, even directly penetrate the mood of the surrounding voices. When technology is a matter of course, intonation is perfect, the movement is relaxed, and the holding of the instrument is economical, there comes the visible joy of the game, which is then transmitted.” (OperaPlus.cz, Libor Nováček, 7 November 2015)
