Gramophone Magazine

“The outstanding aspect of these performances is the quality of sound, rich and beautifully blended. With a heartfelt, expressive quality, [The Fine Arts Quartet] are able to bring out fully the lyrical side of Schumann’s invention... it’s lovely quartet playing, and I’ll want to return to it.”

The Guardian

“These versions [Naxos] of the three Schumann string quartets certainly testify to the [Fine Arts] Quartet's genuine class and musical refinement.”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“The Fine Arts Quartet, founded as long ago as 1946, remains a magnifcent interpreter, here vividly in session in Holland in 2006.”
