Notes & Reviews:

"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
