We then forwarded the links to the two reviews to Eric Lamb via his website. Here is his reply:

Dear Mr. Zick,

Thank you so much for your email and for your kind support of my recording projects! Your reviews are so heartfelt and pleasant! Sandra has passed them on to me, yesterday in fact and I have taken the liberty of sharing them on various sources of social media, and they have received healthy feedback. Thank you so much for the work that you are doing for the classical music community and particularly for artists of color. It is indeed a real honor to have someone so passionate on our side. Just to let you know also, the Quantz CD has just been nominated for a German prize by the 'Preis der Deutschen Schallplatten Kritik' it made the so called Longlist and perhaps will receive a prize. Let's keep our fingers crossed, but it is indeed quite nice to be recognized for musical efforts.

All the very best to you from Austria!
