“Consistently, one registers the idiomatic feeling as well as of the finesse … If anyone thought that to get these players … would result in a routine account, that is the opposite of what has happened … they have responded with both refinement and red-blooded commitment … sound is exceptionally full and open” (Gramophone) “There’s plenty here that people will recognize instantly as favourites, even though they’d no idea what the titles were.” (interview Mark Ermler 1989)
