Classica, Jan. 2014

A robust performance of Brahms’s warm-hearted First Serenade. Beethoven’s Romances make a satisfying counterpart, the solo parts lovingly played by Dumay.

… on admire la rigueur élégante et racée du violon de Dumay qui, dans Tzigane, sait ne pas tomber dans le sentimentalisme facile. Aérien et intense, il est bien le digne successeur des archets de Grumiaux, et, au-delà, d’Ysaye, dédicataire des deux œuvres de Chausson.
