To say that the Cassianos are
sonically striking would be to understate the case. In many ways, they
impress one immediately as being uncompromised—indeed, as described on
the Web site, as aiming at and reaching the artsiest state of the art.
In particular, they could be used as a defining example of the concept
of a silent background, of the speaker that speaks only what is put into
it. This is a quality not easily measured, although it is possible to
measure it (nonspectral contamination is one way that does pretty well).
But in any case it is surely easy enough to hear. And as one expects,
it lays bare both explicit musical detail and the nature of the
recording venue, on recordings which offer that information. This
quality in itself will vault the Cassianos high into the Pantheon for
many listeners." Robert Greene, TAS Jan 2014
