Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
All recommendable: there is a beautifully poised rendition of Dvorak's String Sextet and the players are persuasively idiomatic in the American Quartet and Quintet.

Gramophone Magazine (Quintet, Op. 77)
The recording, clean and warm-toned, is the equal of the playing.

Gramophone Magazine (Quintet Op. 97)
Most sensitively handled.

Gramophone Magazine (of the 'American' Quartet)
The finest and best recorded performance.
