Notes & Reviews:

[From a comparative review with CHA 9664 of Britten String Quartets: in F; in D; No. 2 in C with the Sorrel Quartet] "...These recordings are a windfall for fans of Britten's chamber music, and it is impossible to choose one over the other. I prefer the slightly brighter, more detailed recorded sound of the Chandos disc, but the Naxos, of course, has a strong price advantage...either of these recordings can be enthusiastically recommended." -Burke, Fanfare

International Record Review
well worth acquiring, for they exhibit an understanding of this by no means immediately comprehensible music... these two single CDs are strongly recommended...
