Notes & Reviews:

Two key quartets by the peerless Borodin Quartet.

Gramophone
Triumphant ... Rostropovich's own superb playing in a variety of styles, admirably partnered by Britten (an outstanding chamber music pianist), a splendid performance of the Debussy sonata ... notable for its sensitivity, fluidity and fantasy, and the remarkable rapport evidently existing between these two artists.

Penguin Guide
Beauty & subtlety of Ravel's sublime septet are marvelously realized by this account... great delicacy of feeling... superb in every way ... Osian Ellis' fine musicianship... fine technique and musicality.
