Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Kodaly Quartet seem very much at home in this music, which they approach with affection, yet with an appealing directness which leads to playing which is perfectly integrated, yet fresh. The recording could hardly be bettered: the balance is most natural."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
