Notes & Reviews:

Antonín Dvorák's American String Quartet is a prime contender for a top slot on the all-time hit list of classical masterpieces - and rightly so, as this new recording by the Leipzig String Quartet demonstrates.

Here it is heard along with the same composer's magnificent String Quintet, and the outstanding bassist Alois Posch joins forces with the Leipzig musicians on what promises to be a favorite album for all chamber music fans. And such a program calls for the finest SACD sound, of course in 3D!

And so the Leipzig musicians once again are on target with a benchmark recording. And MDG's three dimensional 2+2+2-recording also leaves no audio wish unfulfilled. The whole ensemble is heard with fascinating intensity and clarity in the concert hall of the living room. The big sound of the bass lends the overall sound an appealing, almost orchestral dynamic breadth. And it all comes with an applause guarantee!
