Notes & Reviews:

Szyamnowski's two string quartets cover a remarkable range of style and emotion...The Goldner Quartet's performances are a model of conviction and insight; indeed, it would be hard to imagine a more persuasive advocate of this repertoire. The same level of excellence is displayed in the small but mighty handful that forms Stravinsky's total contribution to quartet literature, also recorded here." ***** -Smaczny, BBC
