Donald R Vroon
American Record Guide, May 2009

It’s lean and dramatic and very rousing—a good bargain.

Penguin Guide, January 2009

The fine Naxos account has a great deal going for it, even though it does not include the first-movement exposition repeat. The playing is boldly spontaneous and has plenty of fire and expressive feeling. The opening of the finale also has mystery; overall, with full-bodied recording and plenty of presence, this makes a strong impression. It is certainly a bargain.

Penguin Guide, January 2009

A strongly characterized performance of Schumann’s fine Quintet from Jenö Jandó and the Kodály Quartet. This is robust music-making, romantic in spirit, and its spontaneity is well projected by a vivid recording, made in an attractively resonant acoustic. An excellent bargain.

Classic CD, June 1991

A powerful and emotionally charged disc ... They capture Schumann's dreamy romanticism. The recording quality is especially fine.

Gramophone, February 1991

"Hungarian pianist Jenö Jandó has attracted praise with his complete Beethoven Sonatas for Naxos and, on the strength of these powerful performances of the Brahms and Schumann piano quintets with the Kodály Quartet, it's not hard to see why. These are truly committed performances in generally good sound which no buyer on a limited budget can afford to miss."

Bangkok Post

"This Schumann/Brahms disc is a bargain no matter what you pay for it"
