Review By Edward Greenfield ,Gramophone,March 2012

A coupling of Op 127, the most approachable of Beethoven’s late quartets, with Op 131, the most strikingly radical, could not be more attractive, particularly in performances like these, which in every way are exceptional. What is so satisfying about these performances…is the overall warmth of the playing, with speeds ideally chosen and never forced, with natural rubato and shading, and with wonderfully sustained pianissimos, as in the slow fugue which opens Op 131, leading to a perfectly judged climax. ©2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
