„Wahrscheinlich mußten erst 40 Jahre ins Land gehen, bis junge Musiker vom Schlage des Leipziger Streichquartetts eine stark emotionsgeladene Seite der Webern’schen Musik entdecken.” (WDR)

”The complete recording of compositions of the Second Viennese School with the Leipzig String Quartet continues with an extraordinary rendering of Anton Webern’s complete String Quartets and the Piano Quintet of 1907. ... The four instrumentalists are like a breath of fresh air on the chamber music scene.” (Info-Press)
