Notes & Reviews:

"His [Arriaga's] excellent instruction and his extraordinary musical intelligence yield a music that has the subtly of Mozart, the innovation of Haydn, and the economy of Beethoven in a voice of a totally 'new' composer...his music...reveals a lightness of heart, a depth of spirit, and an extraordinary understanding of the way music works... The playing of the Romanian Voces Quartet is just great..." -Fine, ARG

Gramophone Magazine
The playing by the Voces Quartet, whose members are from northern Romania, is outstanding, and the recording, even if it may be a shade restricted in its dynamic range, is exceptionally generous in duration, since most if not at all (I have not seen a score) of the repeats are observed. This is a fascinating issue.
