This new reading would be hard to better, too, bringing playing of fire, energy and intelligence from these players, who seem totally at one with the work and play it with reverential concern
with even the smallest detail of attack, phrasing and dynamics.
It is played with enormous panache and relish by Martinu Quartet. INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, January 2012
Once again it is the positive, ever optimistic Dvořák that we sense in this music and the players here convey a sense of joie de vivre while always giving due weight to the music, pacing reflective moments and passages of increased intensity without losing the sense and momentum in those pages. The contribution of the booklet note writer has no bearing upon my enthusiasm for tese performances! Surely the Martinů Quartet must now rank as a leader among the middle generation of fine Czech quartet and worthy to follow in the Bohemian, Smetana and Panocha quartet in line.
