“You might think that discipline, passion and impetuousness inhabit different universes, but the St. Petersburg Quartet has morphed the three into a powerful musical persona.  Unassailable technique and intonation . . . an astonishingly calibrated range of voicings and dynamics with breathtaking assurance and laugh-out-loud wit.”  (Washington Post)

“Bliss, for this listener, doesn’t get much more unequivocal than this quartet’s performance.” (Toronto Globe and Mail)
