Notes and Editorial Reviews

"If it's the Quintet you want, then this RCA version is without question the one to have . . . . RCA offers Brahms's glorious Second Sextet in a performance that is as beautiful in detail as it is grandly conceived as a whole. Intonation may not be perfect but the fine sweep of it all is irresistible. Heifetz's three Hungarian Dances are a delightful makeweight." -- Gramophone "If it's the Quintet you want, then this RCA version is without question the one to have . . . .
