. . . eminently civilised, thoughtful and aristocratic readings . . . Quite frankly, you couldn't do very much better than this set . . . the Quartetto Italiano remain eminently satisfying both musically and as recorded sound . . . it's rich and warm. In Opp 74 and 95, they more than hold their own against all comers. These are finely proportioned readings, poised and articulate.
