Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, May 2016
The Wihan Quartet gives a deeply considered ensemble performance. The sweetness of tone achieved in the Adagio is remarkable and the first movement has irresistible impetus... Janacek's First String Quartet is also given a handsome reading with superbly poised handling of the rhythm in the second movement and some soulful viola tone in the third.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
The Wihan play sensitively and their fill-ups are especially imaginative.
