The Kodály Quartet…are fully worthy of the composer’s inexhaustible invention and make a splendid bargain recommendation. Their playing brings a joyful pleasure in Haydn’s inspiration and there is not the slightest suspicion of over-rehearsal or of routine: every bar of the music springs to life spontaneously, and these musicians’ insights bring an ideal combination of authority and warmth, emotional balance and structural awareness.



H&B Recordings Direct

"The players take obvious pleasure in this music, investing these works with a lilt that is irresistible"



The Music Magazine

Neat but never fussy articulation, subtle shading and balancing of chords, and unanimity of ensemble characterize the Kodaly's performance, and there is a strong sense of purpose as well as repose in their playing.
