The Gramophone (Jeremy Nicholas) veröffentlichte am 23.5.2023 eine Besprechung der Avec esprit CD.

„Before I begin, I must declare an interest: I am a fully paid-up member of the Tal & Groethuysen fanclub. They have produced over the past 30-plus years some of the finest recordings in the catalogue of music for two pianists, all for the Sony label. While the husband-and wife- team has provided benchmark recordings of Mozart, Schubert, Mendlessohn and Brahms, Sony has, admirably, never batted an eyelid over some of their obscure repertoire for the four hands: Koechlin? Wagner? Reger? Gouvy?“
