Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Anyone who heard the Faure Quartett perform will want to hear it again."
- Martha Argerich

"The Faure Quartett began their life together by scooping numerous European chamber music prizes: now they attract superlatives wherever they go."
- The Strad

"There is no such thing as perfection, but the Fauré Piano Quartet is dangerously close to challenging this notion."
