Notes & Reviews:

MD&G's busiest ensemble, the Leipzig String Quartet, have brought you the only string quartets written by Debussy, Faure and Capalet.

BBC Music Magazine
The Leipzeigers match their thoughtfulness with playing of beauty, vibrant colours and charm. The Debussy is elegant, but forthright, avoiding the trap of dreamy, hazy impressionism. Conte fantastique, Caplet's evocation of Edgar Allen Poe's Masque of the Red Death, is the highlight here, with Langlamet at one with the Leipzigers in this rollercoaster of emotions.
