Notes and Editorial Reviews

2009 Gramophone Award Winner - Best Chamber Recording and Record of the Year!





Their almost palpable sense of wonder means the Ebènes win hands down

What a sensational disc! At a time when there is a multitude of crack new quartets, Quatuor Ebène here stake their claim to join the top rank with riveting playing that encompasses an almost other-worldly sound-range. The Debussy especially left me reeling. With Ebène, the Pavel Haas players, the Belceas, the Pacificas, Jerusalems and more, chamber fans are in good hands for the next few decades at least.
