Notes & Reviews:

"Particularly appealing, partly because of [the Amati Quartet's] superb reading and partly because of the recording quality. The microphoning is fairly close and gives a realistic spread to the instruments but also gives a hint of the vast resonance of the monastery where the recording was made. For some reason, one has a real sense of being physically present for their performance. Their playing in the Schubert is animated, deeply felt, and completely captivating. Audience noise (a cough) is minimal. Although I wouldn't think of coupling Schubert and Janacek normally, this program is very satisfying." - American Record Guide
