Notes & Reviews:

"...The Martinu Quartet's performance [Quartet No. 1] has a great sense of advocacy and insight, particularly in the slow movement and finale...the...Quartet gets inside the music [of No. 2] with a conviction borne of intimate knowledge--a near definitive performance. It also adds a true rarity...Martinu's first composition, the 'Three Horsemen' from c1900--a curiosity, but one which offers abundant evidence of an unfettered imagination." ***** -Smaczny, BBC
