Notes & Reviews:

Alexander Zemlinsky's four numbered string quartets span some four decades, moving from the conservatism of his Brahms-inspired youth to the experimental works of his mature years. Written just after the Lyric Symphony (Naxos 8.572048), the Third Quartet is constructed in a cool, austere language far removed from the emotional, expressionistic atmosphere of the Second Quartet. The Fourth Quartet, written in memory of Alban Berg, is a fitting conclusion to an important body of work bridging the Romantic world of the nineteenth century to the modern age of the twentieth. Quartets Nos. 1 and 2 will follow on Naxos 8.573088.

The Guardian, 22nd August 2013
It is good to see [the Zemlinsky quartets] taken up by such an accomplished young group as the Escher Quartet, who come up with performances of exemplary clarity and intelligence.
