Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The outer movements of KV464 in A are very brilliant ... the variations slow movement is played at exactly the right tempo. [... ] The outer movements of KV465 call for even more bravura, and they receive it in abundance from the Viennese players ... the slow movement - and indeed the Minuet and Trio - are played with great eloquence and with faultless feeling for tempo.

Gramophone Magazine
I cannot recall a more satisfying version of either [Nos. 16 & 17] even from the much treasured sets by the Pro Arte and the Smetana Quartet. [... ] their playing is sheer delight; phrases breathe naturally, there is a delightful sense of give-and-take between the players, and above all, a sense of enjoyment. One feels this is real chamber music-playing and that one is eavesdropping on domestic music-making of the highest quality without any sense of concert-hall projection that mars so many of the more celebrated ensembles now before the public.
