Gramophone Magazine

July 2007

“…the new Quartet, all in their early twenties, bring a freshness and energy plus a level of sheer accomplishment that I don't ever remember hearing in these works. Far from defensiveness or special pleading, they simply assume that they are playing high quality music and that their job is therefore to give it their all. The results are joyous, effervescent.”
