Reviews

Not benchmark recordings, but still worth hearing
These are much recorded works, so it is to the credit of Quatuour Ébène and Akiko Yamamoto that their interpretations are both fresh and individual. They are unlikely to wrest the benchmark status from recordings by more mature performers - the Takács Quartet - or top name German groups - the Artemis Quartet - but this is an elegant and accomplished recording, and deserves to be appreciated on its own considerable merits.
