Notes & Reviews:

A blend of youth and experience (Time Out calls them "an agelessly hip foursome") coupled with a unique versatility has assured the Brodsky Quartet a place at the forefront of the international chamber-music scene. "The Brodsky Quartet, seasoned interpreters of Shostakovich, create performances of compelling depths...superbly played...heart-on-sleeve performance by the Brodsky Quartet." -Musicweek
