Notes & Reviews:

This CD is not only a recording, it is the story of a fascinating journey: the solitary journey of a man who was able to preserve his identity and his artistic freedom bringing the string quartet as a genre - after a very difficult pilgrimage of struggle - to a summit from which one may behold the heritage of Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn, whose manuscripts of the Opus 20 string quartets belonged to Brahms' private library.
