review in the Strad

“Zemlinsky’s A minor Sonata of 1894 receives an especially enriching performance from this poetic partnership””..." Groeneveld plays the turbulent opening movement with passionate conviction and a full-bodied sound, and endows the lovely Allegretto finale with elegance and charm. The Three Pieces, more Schumannesque in mood, are arresting and beautifully characterised.”....”The Dutch duo are also strong advocates for Dohnányi’s 1899 Sonata. Full-throttle playing is required throughout the expansive first movement, with both musicians pushed to their limits, and the spacious recording gives depth and resonance to the sound. Groeneveld executes the delicately hovering spiccato notes in the Mendelssohnian scherzo with precision and grace.”

“Superbe et somptueuse sensibilité artistique que celle de la violoncelliste Larissa Groeneveld qui signe ici un album d’une maturité filigranée, sertie d’intelligence et de profondeur sans effet ni diluation : les phrasés sont finement ciselés, et le rubato d’une liberté de ton particulièrement précis qui lui permet de sentir de l’intérieur, la grande versatilité expressive des œuvres sélectionnées.de Zemlinsky: texture vif argent, crépusculaire et d’un post romantique brahmsien d’une totale finesse d’intonation qui sait- magistralement éviter toute surenchère et tout pathos. La subtilité et la mesure de la violoncelliste sont irrésistibles.”…” Super récital chambriste."

review in Gramophone
March 2016 Charlotte Gardner

“The real triumph, though, is the Lied. Here Groeneveld tones herself down to a tender softness, although retaining the Humoresque’s strength for the crescendos, and it’s hard to imagine this tiny gem singing more under another cellist’s fingertips.”
“Zemlinsky’s A minor Sonata brings more warm, predominantly smooth, expansive readings from Groeneveld, always in perfect communion with van der Laar, who for his part is generous with the pedal but never at the expense of definition.”
