Notes and Editorial Reviews

If the listener has never heard a string quartet composed of “authentic” instruments, he might be surprised at the biting clarity these instruments provide, but when all is said and done, the success of a performance depends on the musical and intellectual insights of the performers, and these players play with understanding, clarity, and power.
