REVIEW

“the most impressive feature is the way the quartet combines care for the overall sound – ensuring that it’s beautifully balanced and, even in the most overwhelming fortissimo, remains euphonious – with a strongly communicative style that has an air of spontaneity… a disc every Brahms lover should hear.”
Gramophone, April 2004

"...unqualified success, passionate and pondered but never ponderous in the way that some earlier recordings of this repertoire have tended to be...a performance that is both highly communicative and beautifully recorded"
The Independent
