Review By Giv_Cornfield, Ph.D.,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,December 2006

While he was in Paris in 1784, Mozart saw a newly-published set of string quartets by Pleyel, and was impressed enough by them to write to his father Leopold that they were as good as any he had seen, and worthy of being 'up there' with Haydn's. High praise indeed, and well deserved - although not in the same class as Mozart's own. Pleyel's writing is highly melodic, at times employing simplistic phrasing, but always enjoyable. The Enso Quartet members play with infectious enthusiasm, with excellent acoustics adding to the enjoyment of listening to this easily accessible music.
