Press Quotes


Each fresh hearing of Janacek’s quartets is a shock — as if his researches into what he called “the melody of speech” resulted in a totally new kind of music...Both works are played with searing intensity by the fine young Romanian quartet.

The Sunday Times

******* *******

Not only do both Quartets set formidable technical challenges, they require astonishing emotional commitment and dramatic timing...the Romanian Arcadia Quartet certainly have the measure of the dramatic aspects of these remarkable works. 

BBC Music Magazine

******* *******

They are not afraid to take matters to the extremes which Janácek invites [...] ... a bold but thoughtful performance of the two remarkable works. They are strenuous performances...The recording is vivid and immediate.
