Notes & Reviews:

Quartetto Italiano presents this brilliant album of Schubert's String Quartets Nos. 13 and 10. Recorded at the Musica Theatre, La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland in January 1976, it has been digitally remastered for optimum sound quality. Quartetto Italiano is Paulo Borciani, Elisa Pegreffi, Piero Farulli, and Franco Rossi.

Sunday Times
I like the way the Quartetto Italiano, on this remastered 1976 recording, bring out the drumming figure in the A minors first movement... The andante's poignant harmonies have space, the allegretto has pathos and, in the finale, the players' sweet tone is combined with vivacity and playfulness. They make an excellent case for the early, experimental - and often patronised - E flat quartet.
