Violinist Joan Faigen's solos were particularly virtuosic. (Violinists Mei Mei Luo, Alexander Zhuk, and Yue Tang also played splendidly.) The Largo was embroidered with perfectly gauged Baroque filigree.

This is definitely "academic" music. (The Italian composer Luciano Berio used a similar compositional scheme much more successfully in his "Markings" based on Schubert's sketches for a tenth symphony.) Violinists Alexander Zhuk and Mikylah Myers McTeer, violist Adrienne Sommerville, and cellist Norbert Lewandowski, as well as Ms. Bruya, were standouts in their difficult, crucially exposed solo parts.
