Notes & Reviews:

"...These glorious Beethoven readings, on period instruments by Quatuor Mosaiques, strike me as passionate, intelligent, and supremely musical. What we have here is like some wonderful old wines packaged in attractive new bottles... That makes these efforts by Quatuour Mosaiques so uniquely compelling is the gorgeous sound of its gut-strung historic fiddles... Whether solo or in unison, these instruments have a pungent sweetness and bloom that's nearly hypnotic... Perhaps it's foolhardy, but I'm hoping to hear even more of such eloquent Beethoven from Quatuour Mosaiques. Urgently recommended." -Fanfare
