Notes & Reviews:

Alain Lanceron, President of Virgin Classics, on the signing of the Artemis Quartet, said, I am very happy to have signed with the Artemis Quartet, natural heir to the Alban Berg Quartet that has given EMI Classics landmark recordings. It is also the first time Virgin Classics signs an exclusive recording contract with a string quartet, and I am positive the Artemis Quartet will stand out as the greatest quartet of its generation worldwide.
