A rising star shows his mettle in chamber music
In the magazine's October issue, Stained Glass is chosen as one of three highly esteemed albums granted with the epitet ‘The Strad Recommends’.
This is an attractive CD, made interesting by its repertoire and marvellous by its quality. Dalene brings ferocious energy to the second-movement Scherzo, with fierce sky-rocket arpeggios, balanced with lightness in the central section. After the graceful Andante he dashes off the finale with vigour and virtuosic finesse, and the two of them produce a barnstorming end to a performance full of colour and character. The Strad, Tim Homfray
