'This is simply the way the music should be played. We are lucky to have such a fine recording of it.'
American Record Guide

Perhaps it would be an odd state of affairs if the Borodin Quartet were not supreme artists in the music of Borodin, but this recording does catch to perfection the finesse of texture and supple lyricism of two string quartets that hold pride of place in the 19-century Russian repertoire.

‘This set has the asset of Chandos’s magnificent mastering, which makes it sound as though it was recorded yesterday, and it’s riveting … This is wonderful playing, full of wry wit and individuality, profound, unsentimental and richly rewarding.’
The Strad on CHAN 9871

These men understand this music totally. Every nuance, every slide, every instance of rubato, and every oscillation of vibrato… is true and organic. I love this recording because of the comfort, warmth and naturalness of the music making… this is simply the way the music should be played. We are lucky to have such a fine recording of it.
American Record Guide

'…the experience of sheer enjoyment takes control and cancels mere analysis.'

‘The Borodin’s utter ease in this music is astonishing. They know instinctively how to let every phrase breathe, and how to let Tchaikovsky’s lyricism take wing, while their tonal refinement seems to command an infinite variety of colour.’
The Guardian on CHAN 9871
