Notes & Reviews:

"The Leipzig Quartet tears into the opening of [Quartet] No. 1, capturing not only the music's sonorous brilliance but its underlying febrile intensity. But the players also respond acutely to the movement's pools of lyricism, and find a wonderfully dusky tone for the mysterious F-sharp minor theme in the second group. The Second Quartet is just as compelling, the first movement more urgent and agitated than in any rival version." ***** - Richard Wigmore, BBC
