Notes & Reviews:

With ist first performance in Salzburg of Shostakovich's Quartet from the Soviet Union emphasised its close relationship with the composer. Their Brahms and Ravel then displayed an art of interpretation that knew no borders.

MusicWeb International, April 2015
There is certainly a frisson about this extremely well recorded Salzburg performance.
