Reviews

Gramophone

It will be difficult to beat, with first-class playing and admirable recording, and at mid-price the short playing time should not be an issue. Very strongly recommended.

Classic CD

Metier are again to be commended for their exploration of neglected repertoire… Powerful performances of astonishingly neglected quartets. Performance ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sound ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
