Notes & Reviews:

"The Renoir Quartet maintains the standard. They are, indeed, a remarkably well-organized group, with perfectly matched bow strokes and tone colors, and complete unanimity of purpose." -Gramophone

"Like Shostakovich and Beethoven before him, Miaskovsky's quartets are a true conversation among four equal players. The Renoir Quartet captures this facet in its stellar performances marked by impeccable balance, an admirable blending of tone, and a clear sense of a unified vision of the score. Technically brilliant from start to finish, the Renoir Quartet plays with spotless intonation, crisp articulation, moderate vibrato, and an immense dynamic range... With performances as gripping as these, we can all hope the Renoir Quartet may someday choose to complete a cycle with the remaining 11 Miaskovsky quartets." -All Music Guide
