Notes & Reviews:

"Quartet 3, composed in 1888, is subtitled 'Slavonic'. It has a more Russian atmosphere than his other quartets. Quartet 5 dates from 1898. The opening viola theme is remarkably similar to the opening of Glazunov's violin concerto, which was written six years later. These two performances are very good. The playing of the Utecht Quartet is smooth and polished, and the recording is superb. It is fairly close and wide-ranging." - Bauman, American Record Guide
