Praise from The Strad

Jonathan Dove

The Strad, Edward Bhesania

“Jonathan Dove’s Ludwig Games, after an exuberant opening flourish and a classy slow lyrical rune, proceeded with challenging, widely spaced triplets spanning the violin’s range, which Osostowicz negotiated with elegance.”

“American composer Peter Ash’s A major Chase was the next work. Osostowicz was alert to its toccata-like writing, its cheeky fugue and its unbuttoned humour – an apt up-beat to the second of the op. 12 sonatas. “

“Matthew Taylor’s Tarantella furiosa takes its starting point from the energy and momentum of the ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata’s finale. Again, Osostowicz- and her partner, Daniel Tong- offered fiery, precise playing.”
