Notes & Reviews:

This specially priced set brings together three previously released recordings by the Jerusalem Quartet. Works include Schubert's String Quartet No.14 and Quartettsatz, Schumann's Piano Quintet and Quartet (with pianist Alexander Melnikov) and Brahms's String Quartet No.2 and Clarinet Quintet (with clarinetist Sharon Kam).

MusicWeb International, February 2016
These accounts from the Jerusalem Quartet have a consistency of sound that is excellent, clear and well balanced. I enjoyed everything about this splendid set. The high level of concentration is striking throughout. With playing as accomplished as this the Jerusalem are clearly an ensemble of impressive unity and intonation.
