“…Dieltiens clearly delights in indulging himself in Boccherini's virtuoso role. In the first Minuet he creates a novel texture in octaves with first violin and, in the D minor quintet, ranges high into the stratosphere, vying with violin. The allegretto and ferociously energetic finale of the F major quintet reveal a finely-honed and fluent ensemble with impeccable intonation.” BBC Music Magazine
