"Quartet playing is supposed to be hard: these four players made it seem easy. They made the audience smile and nod in response to their obvious delight in the music and in performing. Constantly in touch with each other, they moved and breathed as one beautifully musical organism. Imbued with their strong rhythmic sense, the music of every piece flowed and ebbed with grace. There were four individual players on stage, each one a strong personality, but as in all great chamber groups, they created the effect of being one."

--The Boston Musical Intelligencer


"...the group thrives on combinations of intricacy and power. Their touchstones are precision and an assiduously cultivated blend of sound focused and wiry at its core and, whatever the style, so well matched that it can be
difficult to tell where one instrument leaves off and another begins."

--Boston Globe
