Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Herewith another stunning chapter in the Leipzig's survey of the string quartets by the man who invented the form and brought it to full maturity. These works represent that maturity - though certainly not the final greatness of Opuses 76 and 77 - and the Leipzig gives them full-throated, vibrato-laden, glorious readings. There is a discreet sense of order and respect for the composer's wishes embellished by a tasteful freedom of expression and a lovely bloom to the recorded sound. Listening to the players transform the simple opening of No. 3 into such joy is to think alchemy is at work. Their quicksilver attention to the vivace finale of No. 5, The Lark, confirms the impression.
