"This refined Czech ensemble gives finely nuanced, warmly expressive reading of Schubert’s final masterpiece in this genre... With demonstration quality sound, and a welcome coupling, this performance deserves to be heard." *****

The Strad Recommends
"Everything about this recording auggests long acquaintance and a great deal of thought ... The recording is resonant and close enough to hear the players breathing in the rests."

"...An outstanding release."
Mortimer H Frank - International Record Review - July/August 2013
"...One can only imagine the amount of hard work and preparation that has gone into these assured performances… The Wihan are strong and positive and certainly deserve to be heard."
Michael Cookson - MusicWeb-International.com - April 2013
"...If this is one of the finest examples of Schubert’s mastery as a composer of chamber music, so too the performance of the Wihan Quartet is worthy of that mastery. Aided by one of the best and most atmospheric recordings imaginable, this disc can be welcomed with the utmost enthusiasm..."
Terry Barfoot - MusicWeb-International.com - May 2013
"These are excellent studio accounts of classics made in Prague’s Martinu Hall, caught with excellent sound balance by engineer Ondrej Urban and just the right reverberation from the hall. Their playing is impeccable and virtually faultless whether live or from studio."
