Notes & Reviews:

"...These CDs have a nice bloom; they are less glossy but gutsier than the LPs...which is not amiss in this repertoire. They capture the sound and balance of a string quartet about as well as monaural recordings can...The quality of their performances lay in each player's superb technique and true intonation, as well as their mutual understanding and enormous dedication...This set is a testament to an outstanding ensemble; some of the performances remain unsurpassed" -North, Fanfare
