Notes & Reviews:

Established in 1985, the Stamitz Quartet quickly became known as leading interpreters of Czech repertory. Winners of the 1986 National Broadcasting Union Competition in Salzburg, the quartet's rise to fame was meteoric; they have since participated in tours throughout Europe and America, and undertaken a variety of recording projects.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
This collection deserves a nice long review. Even if you already have a favorite recording of any of these cycles, I suggest you get this set as a worthy alternative. The reasonable price leaves you with no excuse.
