Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Naxos recordings by the Kodaly Quartet are outstanding in every way and would be highly recommendable even without their considerable price advantage. The digital recording has vivid presence and just the right amount of ambience: the effect is entirely natural."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
