"From the first note of the famous quintet the Pentachord Ensemble overwhelmed with their lightness, precision and very agile way of playing. Schubert escaped from all the clichés. Also is in all their smaller group arrangements The Pentachord a joy to the eye and ear, because of the dedicated music making of the musicians. A sparkling ensemble that left the audience of the museumchurch of Schokland in awe."
-from a review of the Noordoostpolder newspaper.
"The Trout Quintet can be reckoned among the gems of classical music. Of the Dutch music ensembles the Pentachord threads a long chain of gems with their way of playing. Moreover, for the entire ensemble applies that they posses a special musical gift and that they feel intensely connected to their instruments, one can see that, one can hear that."
-from a review of the Nieuwe Meerbode, Aalsmeer (NL)
