Notes & Reviews:

"While listening to this CD, I was again amazed to think what great musical treasures continue to lie slumbering in the archives and what phenomenal composers await rediscovery... " (klassik-heute). This is the last volume in the awe-inspiring 17 string quartets by Weinberg and features the early Quartet No. 2 of 1939 and the last Quartet No. 17 from 1986 thus offering an overview of Weinberg's entire oeuvre.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Again the Danel Quartet plays Vainberg with fierce concentration and commitment, and CPO's sonics are exemplary. Anyone who cares about the string quartet in the modern era should seek out these recordings.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
The Danel Quartet deliver strongly committed performances employing a hugely varied and imaginative tonal palette that always serves the music to its best advantage.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
This disc is the final volume in a complete survey of [Weinberg's] string quartets. It is, therefore, a particular joy that they play with such insight, as well as accuracy and homogeneity of tone and ensemble. There is no hint of the victim in this music...Instead, it is imbued with a sense of pride in how greatness manages to flourish above all.
