Notes & Reviews:

This album includes the three "Razumovsky" string quartets performed by one of the most celebrated and accomplished string quartets performing today. The Miró Quartet's performance is vigorous, virtuosic and lush. The sound quality is outstanding, with the quartet performing on four exquisite antique instruments.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The Miro Quartet presents Quartets 7, 8, and 9 - the Rasoumovsky Quartets, in knockout performances. The opening statement in the cello was so gorgeous that I immediately replayed it - twice - just to hear it again. The playing is intense and full of character. The Kodaly Quartet (Naxos) plays it slower and while it's a better tempo.
