Review By Steven Ritter,Audiophile Audition,September 2012

The First is very classical, short…and contained a beauty of concentrated expression in a very concise model. No. 2 is much more expansive…This is a symphonic-like work in the form of a suite.

The Third Quartet is easily the greatest here and one of the most famous…one of the glories of the entire string quartet catalog.

The Fourth Quartet is in a much lighter mood…and it is a work that reflects a great deal of courage and artistic integrity.

The Pacifica Quartet is a marvel in this music, recorded with lots of atmosphere at the University of Illinois. © 2012 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
