Penguin Guide, January 2009

well played by this fine Romanian team and priced at the right level. The adventurous collector will not baulk at a fiver for repertoire that he or she does not know and will find the outlay worthwhile.

Rob Cowan
Gramophone, May 2001

"The Ad Libitum Quartet do a fabulous job. They attend to Enescu's endless technical demands with a devotion that transcends to apparent effortlessness­KNaxos' superior production is a secure top recommendation and unbeatable value at super-budget price. You simply have to try it."

Martin Anderson
International Record Review, May 2001

"...The Naxos disc has a more forthright recorded sound - and, of course, it's half the cost of the CPO version. It thus becomes an automatic recommendation.

Enescu was one of the finest composers of the twentieth century, though he has hardly been given the chance to prove it. The quartets may not be the easiest way of exploring his output, but this disc is still an important step in opening up his music to a wider public. I do urge you to try it."

David Nice
BBC Music Magazine, April 2001

"Now that Enescu's rich and complex symphonies have done well on disc, it's the turn of the string quartets. Countless haunting passages will lead you back to try and grasp the whole; the effort, as always with Enescu, is worthwhile (Performance *****)."
