…the Casal Quartet does these works proud, with a full and…powerful modern soundscape. The recording is clear as a bell, allowing for the often complex inner voices to come through, and the ensemble is outstanding. My recommendation is that this…is a must-have. It has interesting and progressive music performed in a manner that is energetic and finely nuanced. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

Fanfare, November 2014

What makes this disc special is the complete recording of his most popular and progressive set of string quartets…that are every bit the equal of Joseph Haydn’s middle period works. They range from solid and tuneful to dramatic and emotional, from the high Classic to Sturm und Drang, with equal voicing among the four instruments and some really fine counterpoint to boot. This will change the view on the development of this important genre during its earliest years. © 2014 Fanfare
