'It's a long time since I've enjoyed a record so much on so many counts - performance, recording, presentation... and the music itself' (Gramophone)

'Music-making at the highest level of accomplishment' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'[An] exceptional disc. The performances rank with the best I know' (International Record Review)

'Remains one of the freshest and most enchanting recordings available of Fauré's piano quartets' (Amazon.co.uk)

'These performances of Fauré's piano quartets from Domus are a highlight of the label and should be in every collection... an exquisitely vivacious reading. These sublime accounts have been without peer in this extraordinary contrasting pair of chamber masterpieces' (BBC Music Magazine)
