This is the fifth and final volume of Carpe Diem's highly acclaimed cycle of Taneyev's nine complete string quartets which are notable not only for the composer's famed meticulous craftmanship but for their attractive lyrical sweep. Infused with the spirit of Haydn and Mozart, the harmonically adventurous Eighth Quartet includes a beautiful and romantic Adagio. The Second String Quintet is a monumental work in every sense, standing firmly alongside the later quartets.

5 - Classical Lost & Found (CLOFO) - Critic Review - 1/1/2017
"Moreover, the instruments are comfortably spread across a generous soundstage in warm, accommodating venues. The players are positioned in usual fashion for the quartet, but the quintet has the cellist placed center with the violinists to the left, and violists on the right. A realistic balance is maintained throughout, and the string tone is very natural. It’s characterized by pleasing highs, a musical midrange, and clean bass with no sign of hangover in the cello's lower registers." -Bob McQuiston
