Notes and Editorial Reviews

[T]he interpretation of Dvorák's Piano Quintet given by Clifford Curzon and the VPO Quartet...is relaxed, urbane, yet always spirited, even zestful, and these, needless to say, are qualities that match the music extremely well; the recording thoroughly belies its age.

-- Gramophone [8/1977]
