Raphaela Gromes and Julian Riem inspire the audience with their wonderful CD Serenata Italiana. "Both players lavish detailed attention to the text, providing neat rhythmic playing coupled with a compelling lyricism. (...) a truly exciting and brilliant delivery!“ (Joanne Talbot, The Strad)
"Gromes makes a very attractive sound, warm but clearly defined at the top, big and sonorous at the bottom. (...) Gromes combines sincere expression and needlepoint brilliance in Sinigaglia’s two miniatures and wraps it all up with an effortlessly nonchalant account of Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s jaw-droppingly flashy paraphrase on Rossini’s ‘Largo al factotum’." (Richard Bratby, Gramophone).
