The Sunday Times, CD of the Week, 22 October 2017. “The Takacs play the too rarely heard A flat quartet, Dvorak’s later masterwork of the genre, done ‘con amore and empathy’. This life-enhancing music is a tonic.”

A new release from the Takács Quartet is guaranteed to be a highlight of the musical year, and this one easily exceeds all expectations. The ‘American’ quintet dates from Dvorák’s sojourn in the New World, the quartet from his return to old-world Prague; both are marvellous works,
sounding here every bit the masterpieces they undoubtedly are.
