If this premiere recording of Stephen Hough's String Quartet no.1 may be regarded as definitive – the work is dedicated to the Takács Quartet – those of the quartets by Ravel and Dutilleux are no less distinguished.

"You will not hear better string quartet playing anywhere in the world today." - BBC Music Magazine (CDA68364: Haydn - String Quartets opp. 42, 77 & 103)

"Its the highest-quality Haydn." - BBC Record Review (CDA68364)

"This [album] is well worth it for the combination of brother and sister." - BBC Record Review (CDA68330: Felix & Fanny Mendelssohn - String Quartets)


This recording really is a joy from start to finish. […] the Takacs Quartet are alive to every inflection in Ravel’s meticulously marked score [String Quartet].
BBC Music Magazine February 2023
