Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The Rodin Quartet, named for the French sculptor, is based in Munich. Like the Gringolts they are a fine group. Another passage will make the differences clearer. The minuet in the Second Quartet has a B section (Allegretto vivace) that is staccato and leggiero. With the Gringolts I muttered "Wow" when I heard them; with the Rodin the playing was absolutely fine. Sound for the Rodin group is excellent; the cello has proper presence.

The Rodin Quartet often present works outside the standard repertoire, but these four Music Academy, Munich alumni have much to say as well about the standard repertory. On their label AMATI, they present the two string quartet masterpieces, op. 51, of Johannes Brahms. Adopting their name from the great 19th century French sculptor Auguste Rodin, this young and internationally admired quartet have often appeared on disc, radio and TV, and embrace a wide and diverse repertoire.
