Notes & Reviews:

After the enthusiastic response to their debut CD featuring Pleyel's Prussian Quartets Nos. 7-9, the Pleyel Quartet of Cologne now turn to Nos. 4-6 from this same series. Klassik-heute rated the first CD with 10 out of 10 points in the category of artistic quality, and remarked on the Quartet's fine musical touch as "astonishing".

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
I, like so many music lovers, was once guilty of thinking Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven were isolated geniuses who stood head and shoulders over their contemporaries. Now, after figuring in the quality of music for string quartet by Pleyel (along with Boccherini, Dittersdorf, and Titz) it's becoming clear just how limiting that kind of thinking can be. Pleyel's contemporaries were delighted by his music, and now we can be too.
