Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Naxos issue is an eminently satisfactory bargain. Indeed, it provides more musical pleasure than one might find from more celebrated ensembles, and the recording has good presence and is well balanced." - PENGUIN GUIDE, 2003/4 Edition "The Naxos issue is an eminently satisfactory bargain.

 Partial Agreement with Penguin April 29, 2012 By Robert L. (Springfield, OH) See All My Reviews "The technical quality of this 1996 CD is not what we have come expect from Naxos. It has excess reverberation and lacks the balanced immediacy of many of the CDs of the Kodaly, Eder, and Maggini quartets released by Naxos. Despite the soft focus, this is an enjoyable album. With better recording technique, it could have been much more enjoyable." Report Abuse
