Notes & Reviews:

The original versions of Robert Schumann's string quartets have never been heard in recorded form. The Leipzig String Quartet discovered this repertoire gap and now has filled it with a fascinating recording premiere on two CDs. As an encore, the four musicians present Schumann's world-famous Piano Quintet, Op. 44. Their partner on the piano: Christian Zacharias.

BBC Music Magazine
Working with Christian Zacharias the Leipzig Quartet turn out a performance that combines subtlety and strength on the minute expressive and grand architectural planes... .For sheer joie de vivre the Zacharias-Leipzig Scherzo is hard to match.
