Fanfare, March 2016

Loving readings, superb execution, and a beautifully clean, transparent recording earn my highest recommendation. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

Richard A. Kaplan
Fanfare, March 2016

The playing here is of a very high level, with spot-on intonation and excellent ensemble; there is some particularly distinguished work by the two violists. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

David Denton
The Strad, February 2016

Here we have a fresh-faced Brahms performance from a multinational student quartet that implicitly recreates the composer’s wide dynamic markings in naturally flowing and unexaggerated tempos. The refined and rounded tone quality of the young German cellist Philip Graham distinguishes the slow movement, and is equally eloquent in a lovely reading of Dvořák’s Third Quintet, the group’s interpretation—with a vivacious finale—revealing the rapprochement of themes derived from the composer’s American sojourn with a yearning for his Czech homeland. © 2016 The Strad Read complete review

David Threasher
Gramophone, January 2016

…the Voce and guest viola player Lise Berthaud offer [a reading] that has been refined through repeated performance. They know the architecture of the music from the inside, and are aware of those places where a little time can be given to a phrase, where the music can be allowed to breathe a bit more. © 2016 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, September 2015

This disc is full of expressive warmth and vigour, yet the performances always sound very natural and well thought. © 2015 Pizzicato
