Notes and Editorial Reviews

'These richly scored string quintets must rank among the finest works of Brahms's maturity . . . In the traditions of the best chamber music playing the Raphael Ensemble project a tremendous sense of enjoyment of the music - it certainly feels as if they are rediscovering masterworks afresh' (Classic CD) 'Their playing is unerringly distinguished, and Hyperion's sonics defy criticism - a glorious offering' (BBC Music Magazine) 'L'interprétation des Raphael est essentiellement vitale. Sa plus belle qualité: l'intensité. Ils imposent une vision symphonique des deux partitions' (Diapason, France) 'These richly scored string quintets must rank among the finest works of Brahms's maturity . . .
