Notes & Reviews:

An outstanding career spanning three decades has made the Auryn Quartet one of the most sought-after and respected ensembles performing around the globe. "The Auryn plays with an enviable balance of abandon and discipline" (American Record Guide) and "shared spirituality" (The New York Times).

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Tacet is a small "audiophile" label based in Germany that's been recently issuing superb sounding recordings (engineered with analog, tube-based equipment) of both standard and, on occasion, unusual repertoire, some on SACD, some on 180-gram high-quality LP, and some on both. A decade ago such an enterprise - releasing just-recorded classical music performances on vinyl - would have been almost unthinkable. The performances I've heard on Tacet have been quite good. The excellent Auryn Quartet appears on several earlier Tacets, and with a couple of assisting musicians also on this new SACD (with both stereo and multichannel SACD mixes as well as a conventional- CD stereo layer). On it are Dvorak's String Sextet along with his two trios for two violins and viola (Dvorak called them "terzettos"). If, like me, you love Dvorak's chamber music here's a fine chance to discover more from the great Czech's store of treasures. With the two charming terzettos as a bonus, and everything here so lovingly played and recorded, how can you resist?
