"it was in the ultimate heroic tone of defiance and ironic acquiescence that Davislim came into his own. This in an actor singer of thrilling intensity and musical beauty. The sensitive accompaniment of Anthony Romaniuk didn't steal his thunder ... TinAlley String Quartet ... gave a sensitive and spirited reading of Schubert's Rosamunde Quartet."
