 A new favorite November 12, 2013 By Endel Bendel (Spencer, MA) See All My Reviews "Bought this right away after i heard one of the Schumann Qrs on the radio. This is terrific music. Performance compares favorably with the impassioned and ultra competent Brahms collection by Alban Berg Qr." Report Abuse
