Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The original versions of these five-movement Cassations were scored for two horns and strings, and the arranger of the string quartet versions is unknown, but they transcribe very effectively. The E flat Quartet is notable for its charming serenade-like slow movement, pizzicato second Minuet and cheerful finale; the D major has a winningly energetic opening movement, another graceful slow movement and a racy finale. They are admirably played here and splendidly recorded.
