Notes & Reviews:

The Utrecht String Quartet continues its complete recording of Alexander Glazunov's string quartets with the Five Novelettes op. 15 and the String Quartet in B flat major op. 106. This edition turns out to be an outstanding visiting card for this engaging Dutch ensemble.

"The long-established Utrecht players are in every way outstanding and enjoy superb sound quality." -The Strad

"The Utrecht String Quartet plays with tragic grandeur." -Crescendo

"The Utrecht Quartet's understanding of Glazunov's music -- of its tender lyricism, its powerful rhythms, its integral forms, and, best of all, its quality of ineffable kindness -- is complete and its ability to express its affection and admiration for the music is consummate." -All Music Guide
