" It was hard not to fall in love with the Szymanowski Quartet at the Frick Collection on Sunday afternoon.
All professionals perform with intensity, but playing from the heart is another matter.
The sound was unusually warm, filling this small space to capacity."
(Bernard Holland, New York Times)
„This Warsaw foursome has superb technical control, innate musicality and an extraordinary sense of ensemble. Couple that with a deep understanding of their repertoire and an involvement that communicates itself electrifyingly to an audience, and the Karol Szymanowski Quartet bears the hallmark of greatness."
(Paul Cutts in "The Strad")
