« Beyer’s accomplished performances are greatly helped by the alert playing of the orchestral strings. Indeed, the sense of sheer enjoyment in music-making is palpable throughout this disc. »

« Taillés sur mesure pour un violoniste italien friand d'agilités dans l'aigu, les deux concertos trouvent enfin un(e) interprète sensible à leur fantaisie autant qu'à leurs raffinements. »
