Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dvorák’s chamber music is one of the most popular parts of his repertoire and contains some classics of the genre. Thoroughly Romantic, endlessly imaginative and imbued with Slavonic fire, the String Quintet and String Sextet are elegantly performed by the virtuoso musicians of The Raphael Ensemble.

'Delightful works, delightfully played' (Gramophone)

'Warmly effusive playing, captured in exquisite sound' (American Record Guide)
