Notes & Reviews:

"This is quite glorious ... one senses right from the opening of Bruckner's Quintet - surely one of the finest quintets ever written, for any combination - an intensity that matches its ambitious structure ... it's obvious from the first bars of the achingly beautiful Prelude ... that this is going to be an exceptional performance" -CD Review

"Easily takes first place within the exiguous competition" - Fanfare

"Strongly recommended" -Hi-Fi News

"The substitute intermezzo (with the same trio) is appended here, but the original second movement is, of course, played in this superb account. As a preamble of a stylistically opposite kind - a Bruckner antidote - the ensemble offers the suavely concise string-sextet prelude to Strauss's opera Capriccio." -Sunday Times***
