Review By Classic CD,

"the Kodaly's fine reading "

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

What strikes one immediately at the opening of the Kodály’s account of the great A minor Quartet, D. 804, is the guileless simplicity of their approach. There is drama too, but the innocent, lyrical feeling persists, and it enhances the lovely Andante with its Rosamunde theme. The restless opening of the Minuet/Allegretto is perfectly caught, and the good-natured finale maintains the finesse and warmth of what is a most rewarding performance. The earlier E flat major Quartet is presented with comparable geniality and again the ensemble is immaculate, with some delightful interchanges in the vigorous finale with its wistful secondary theme. Once again excellent recording.
