Reviews"If you love the quartet medium, you will love this record. The Alberni’s performances here are zestful, well-considered and integrated, but filled with a youthful joy.” “Performances which are deeply satisfying. The engineers have produced an extremely natural sound.” – Peter Turner, Hi-Fi News & Record Review "A very good selection of Schumann's string Quartets - all of them. Coupled with one by Mendelssohn. Ideal. A wonderful 2-CD set of enduring enjoyment!" – Stephen Wilkins "Gently persuasive performances underline the intimate nature of Schumann's writing..." – BBC Music Magazine
