Notes & Reviews:

A perfect album collection of Czech music! "The Talich Quartet have no want of drama or firethis is cultured playing, and moreover they are better served by their recording engineers...Not a great deal to choose between the Talich and the Lindsay Quartets, and readers can invest with confidence, and with attractive bonus tracks." - Penguin Guide, 3 Stars
