Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The players restore life to works by the Austrian composers Joseph Marx and Erich Wolfgang Korngold long left on the shelf of history...Both pieces receive ultra-impassioned, vividly detailed performances by the musicians of the New York Piano Quartet. Given the fact that Marx and Korngold aren’t shy about wearing hearts on sleeves, the players dig into the music with alacrity, the strings often employing juicy vibrato and slides to emphasise the composers’ expressive oints. The artistry has the excitement that often transpires when something significant as been unearthed and savoured.”

-- Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone, June 2013
