Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Janacek Quartet's American is a delight. It's the kind of performance that instantly purges memories of all the bad or merely adequate readings one has endured. . . . [I]n almost everything there's authority, immediacy and above all the feeling that a well-known piece is being made afresh. . . . I can't imagine that this superb American will disappoint in any way." -- Stephen Johnson, Gramophone "The Janacek Quartet's American is a delight.
