“The interpretation[s] by the New York Piano Quartet can only be described as exhilarating.” – Joachim Wagner, amazon.de

Mahler with a solid tone and a sure sense of direction … they project… diverse styles… with understanding and finesse.” – MusicWeb

[U]ltra-impassioned, vividly detailed performances of Korngold and Marx … the players dig into the music with alacrity, the strings often employing juicy vibrato and slides to emphasise the composers’ expressive points. The artistry has the excitement that often transpires when something significant has been unearthed and savoured.” – Gramophone
