 Beautiful Renditions October 31, 2014 By T. Vawter (Bellingham, WA) See All My Reviews "I've enjoyed Schumann's fine piano compositions for some time but have just begun to discover how wonderful Brahms work in this area really is. Each of these quintets are played with delightful precision by the Kodaly Quartet with Jando' as featured pianist. This groups reputation of being one of the best ensemble groups is very well deserved. I will be looking for more music from Kodaly and recommend them very highly." Report Abuse
