“I’ve not heard such a compelling version of this prophetic masterpiece [Schubert] since the Juilliards’ ‘Epic’ LP from the 1960s – and the Haydn G major Quartet is granted a similarly perceptive reading, the wonderful Poco adagio third movement especially. Excellent sound clinches a deal that simply cannot be missed”
