Notes & Reviews:

"Though it's difficult to imagine Spohr's music ever regaining the popularity and high prestige it enjoyed during his lifetime, recordings of much of his enormous output are now available. This 1996 programme features two substantial late works... The New Haydn Quartet and colleagues play confidently, with strong, expressive, well blended tone and rhythmic verve. There are places û the Sextet's finale is one û where I wondered whether a lighter, more pointed style might have served the music better, but in general I can't imagine the composer being other than delighted..." -Gramophone
