Notes & Reviews:

"Berg's 'Lyric Suite' has been well served on CD...This new version from the young Leipzig Quartet can well stand comparison...It has all the warmth and tenderness these passionate love-letters need; and in the Allegro misterioso third movement, where the composer's own initials are whisperingly intertwined with those of the woman he secretly loved, the music rushes by in...hushed tones...[This] is a very distinguished disc indeed." ***** -Donat, BBC
