“delightful…in their interpretation of content and in their response to performance markings the Casals Quartet bespeaks an ensemble as new and special as the music itself.” - Nalen Anthoni, Gramophone (November 2009)
"Haydn’s six Op 33 quartets are more celebrated as the works that stimulated Mozart to compose his famous set of six (which he dedicated to Haydn) than they are for themselves...they richly repay performances as inventive and witty as these ones by the excellent Cuarteto Casals. The group’s rhythmic vitality and dynamic range are a constant pleasure. Occasionally, they play too fast for the notes to register (and the mysterious scherzo of No 3 is marked allegretto, not allegro), and their excessively quiet playing in the recapitulation of No.5’s first movement obscures Haydn’s audacious harmonic adventures. Nonetheless, this set represents an exciting issue." - David Cairns, Sunday Times (27 September 2009)
