Notes & Reviews:

"...recommend it I do, to anyone who enjoys clean-lined, lucid, shapely, in-the-tradition string quartet music of unassailable integrity and craftsmanship. There is no sentimentality or excess, no self-indulgence or showiness, but instead the humane warmth and thoughtfulness of a proud, sensitive, introverted man devoted to the classic ideals of expressive nobility and reverence for established forms. Those are my ideals, to, so Porter's music speaks to me and for me, and for that I'm grateful." -American Record Guide
