BBC Music Magazine

October 2007


“The charming early B flat Quartet and the stirring, masterly Voces Intimae are the chief works in this anthology, vibrantly and idiomatically played by the Tempera Quartet, a first-rate young Finnish ensemble who also give a moving account of the Andante Festivo.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2007

“A praiseworthy conclusion to the Tempera's fascinating project. ‚Ķcontaining the composer's 1909 masterpiece in the medium, Voces intimae. I can report that the Tempera give a technically immaculate, warm-toned and incisive display that will delight all those who have collected their series thus far. Boasting NIS's customarily mellifluous sound and exemplary presentation, this makes a fitting culmination to what has been a most rewarding series.”
