"La prise de son est d’une rare perfection"

-La Presse, January 2015

Schubert and Beethoven

"This foursome of high-powered Canadian string stars presents performances of two canonical early-Romantic works that are nothing short of electrifying... Both four-movement pieces veer between intimacy and grandeur, extroversion and quiet solitude. These four string virtuosos animate every note with uncommon power and passion as well as elegance. Listen and weep."
