Notes & Reviews:

If a string quartet wins two of the most important competitions for their instruments within only a few months, this is something of a sensation - even if the Amaryllis Quartett, whose debut GENUIN CD is now being released, had long been a household name among chamber music fans. Now listeners can revel in the refined tone and technical perfection of their playing.

Fanfare Magazine, July / August 2012
As with the Webern, the Amaryllis Quartet plays the two Haydn quartets with exceptional technical control and keen musical insight. This is an ensemble on an unquestionably upward trajectory. I would just hope that in future releases programming will be a bit more judicious and that we will get more than 48 minutes of music for our hard-earned dollars. Except for those two caveats, strongly recommended.
