Notes and Editorial Reviews

Praised for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by the New York Times, the Amernet String Quartet has garnered recognition as one of today’s exceptional string quartets and are Ensemble-in-Residence at Florida International University in Miami. Their sound has been called “complex” but with an “old world flavor.” Strad Magazine described the Amernet as “…a group of exceptional technical ability.” On this new release, the ensemble performs a programme entitled Much Ado About Nothing, including works by Beethoven, Britten, Korngold, and Summer.
