Guy Weatherall
Classical Music, September 2019

The second instalment of this excellent ensemble’s cycle of Bacewicz’s seven quartets makes in many ways a better introduction to the series. The warm, expressionist opening to the fourth quartet is instantly winning, inviting us into a sound world that is at once distinctive yet flecked with echoes of Ravel, Debussy and Shostakovich. With typically warm, clear sound, now’s the time to start looking forward to volume three. © 2019 Classical Music

As the Lutoslawski Quartet already showed in the first volume, this second one with three more Quartets by Grażyna Bacewicz, the four players once more prove themselves musicians of imaginative vitality and narrative force. © 2015 Pizzicato

Seek no further if you seek something “new” and excellent to enliven your everyday world right now… © 2015 Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review Read complete review
