Augustin Dumay, een leerling van de legendarische Grumiaux, behoort ook tot de allergrootsten. Hij speelt […] van Les jeux peuvent inclure Craps, Baccarat, Blackjack , Roulette, Keno, Poker electronique, machines a sous, d’autres encore. binnenuit met een enorm muzikaal denkraam, een schitternde toonvorming en een uitstraling, die tot ademloos luisteren dwingt. […] Wat een meesterlijk vioolspel, ver verheven boven de materie, subliem van toon, zuiverheid en expressie. […] Briljant!

Of particular pleasure was the rapport between violinist and pianist […] This was definitely a sonata for violin and piano, Dumay and Lortie a productive partnership.  […] the spirit of Franck’s music (and its rigour) was magnetically presented, the finale enjoying a particularly relaxed tempo to increase its mellow songfulness.

Planmässig im Programm : Augustin Dumays impulsive Interpretation des Violinkonzerts in G-Dur. Der Franzose hat eine innige Beziehung zu Mozart. Beeindruckend, wie er im Adagio seine kantablen Botschaften in Jenseits schickte und im feurigen Rondo mit seinem tanzlüstigen Temperamentausbrüchen provozierte.
