reconciliation between the traditions of Borodin and Tchaikovsky ... Shostakovich Quartet have great feeling for this music and play with real conviction” - Penguin Guide (Glazunov)

“their earlier recordings (as here) are unassailable recommendations. Look no further” - Penguin Guide (Tchaikovsky)

“an excellent performance, which at times even matches the abandon and attack of the Hollywoods. The Second a work of real quality which has the astringent flavouring and poetic flair that characterize Prokofiev at his best” - Gramophone (Prokofiev)

“(They)…bring a special intensity to this repertoire as well as effortless technical address, and a tonal blend which gives their readings a strong claim on the collector’s allegiance.” - Penguin Guide 3 stars (Shostakovich)
