★★★★★ Music

★★★★★ Sound

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."

“Without any exaggeration, the Berlin-Tokyo Quartet is the most perfect string quartet of our time – in terms of precision, culture, art of characterization and musical context.
The Quartet-Symphony is One of the great masterpieces of Soviet music. The performances, released on their own label, are phenomenal and unsurpassable in every way.”
