“Incredible: what a masterpiece!
Gavriil Popov's "Quartet Symphony" is epic like a Schubert quartet. No trace of melancholy, but rather very lively. [...] An exhilarating experience. The Quartet Berlin-Tokyo dared to make the first recording ever and played the immensely difficult piece daringly and easily, penetratingly and elegantly, sky-stormingly and gently. The young musicians [...] have a tone that is both fine and robust and harmonize fabulously together in Popov's sophisticated sound fabrics.
(Schulhoff's "Five Pieces") "...The fabulous quartet presents them all as sparkling jewels."
