Notes & Reviews:

During the past 10 years, Quartetto di Cremona has matured into a string quartet of international renown. The musical style of the quartet is marked by a fruitful tension between Italian and German-Austrian influences. The players naturally unite both poles, combining boisterous enthusiasm with a distinct sense for musical architecture.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The Quartetto Di Cremona is named after the Italian city that was home to many of the greatest luthiers, including Guarneri and Stradivari. In this, Cremona's first volume of the Beethoven cycle, we are offered an early quartet, a middle quartet, and a late quartet. Their rendition of No. 6 is very good. Cremona's reading of No. 11 is even more muscular. A good introduction is perhaps a relatively straightforward performance. on the contrary, it is a very expressive and beautiful reading. It's just "safe".
