Notes & Reviews:

Hi-Fi News and Record Review
Kodaly's syncopations are put over with the most telling effect... This is marvelous string quartet playing... The recording is absolutely first class, the four instruments being beautifully balanced.

Gramophone
This present account by the Melos Quartet o Suttgart is among the finest of their records and is not only superbly played but both beautifully and naturally recorded. Intonation and ensemble are perfect, and they are scrupulous in their observance of dynamic markings.

Gramophone
The young players of the Melos Quartet formed themselves into a group only in 1965, but their quality has already brought them into prominence. Technically accomplished, with impeccable intonation and beautiful tone, they do not shrink form harshness where is required and show splendid rhythmic vigor: their leader is outstandingly good.
