Notes & Reviews:

"Individually, each player is a virtuoso, and together they form a virtuoso ensemble that can handle any technical difficulties. More importantly, the players are also all deeply committed to the music. Each work here shines: the masterful and wholly characteristic B flat major Quartet, the early and less characteristic but still effective E major Quartet, and exceedingly lovely and sensual Barcarolle. Captured in digital sound so real you'll have to check that the players are not, in fact, in the room with you, this disc should be heard by anyone interested in the composer, the period or the genre." -All Music Guide

Gramophone Magazine
The Mozart Piano Quartet play both quartets with considerable Tlan, evoking the spirit of their namesake in Saint-Sadns's beautifully balanced, often gossamer textures. Where power is required, thoughà they respond with assurance. àa splendid disc.
