Notes & Reviews:

Note: This title is rare and is considered a collector’s item. It is priced according to its common market value. If the record label that it is on goes on sale, it will also be reduced in price.

"The G minor Quartet is one of Grieg's most deeply felt pieces and the Chilingirian has its measure...[The Chilingirian Quartet] are unfailingly alive and intelligent. My preferred version of the G minor remains the Finlandia disc coupled with the Sibelius but the Chilingirian has complete dedication and a freshness that is wholly persuasive in both scores." ***** -BBC Music
