Notes & Reviews:

"When the initial evaluation of this release appeared in Fanfare a dozen years ago, it was praised for "virtuoso playing of top quality and dedication." The performers were among the best in the period-instrument movement at the time and they still are. There is a youthful vigor in theses recordings, not to mention confidence, and even a tad of swagger; all are appropriate to the tone of this music which impresses by way of Rossini's incalculable melodic gifts, not to mention his sentient writing for the strings, particularly unusually prominent bass part, which was written for Rossini's host in the summer of 1804. Now that it has been returned to the catalog at a reduced price it is not just a bargain, but a steal." Michael Carter, Fanfare

'These wonderful works are best heard in their original quartet version' (Gramophone)

'Brimming with good humour and brilliance. With nearly 80 minutes' worth of music captured in fine sound, this disc offers excellent value' (CD Review)

'Une delicia absoluta' (CD Compact)

'Virtuoso playing of top quality as well as style and dedication. One can recommend this release without hesitation' (Fanfare, USA)

'Slight, unfailingly melodious, and lovingly performed' (BBC Music Magazine)
