Notes & Reviews:

"This is generous, unselfish, beautifully integrated chambermusic playing, but playing in which the collective weight—both physical and spiritual—of four charismatic solo players has obvious advantages. Indeed, a few bars of Ax/Stern/Laredo/Ma in the G minor Quartet's luscious Andante con mot° and one might be wondering why Schoenberg bothered with his orchestration at all... The recordings place us at close quarters to this distinguished foursome, which is exactly where anyone who knows what's good for them would want to be." -Gramophone
