Notes & Reviews:

Hailed for its "precision, assertiveness and vigor" (New York Times), its "gripping intensity" and "suspenseful and virtuoso playing" (San Francisco Classical Voice), and for a "hair-raising performance (Strad), the Amphion String Quartet is a winner of the 2011 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition. The Quartet served as the Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-In-Residence at the Caramoor Festival for the 2012 - 13 season, and has recently joined the roster of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center CMS Two program.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
In an age when fine string quartet recordings are abundant, this one is outstanding. I hope to hear much more from this group. With any luck, we'll hear them play Janacek's other great quartet.
