New CD: Brahms Piano Quintett with Peter Frankl & String Quartet B-flat Major

It is always pure pleasure to play with our friend the great pianist Peter Frankl. The third String Quartet completes this CD, the two quartets op. 51 are to follow soon!

New CD: Kreisler, Schulhoff, Zemlinsky - and Gramophone is enthusiastic!

The first product of our renewed collaboration with NIMBUS hast been released and we already received a rave rewiev in Gramophone (see 'Press')...
Besides the wonderful string quartet by Fritz Kreisler and the powerful pieces by Erwin Schulhoff this CD includes Alexander Zemlinsky's early quartet. We had the honour to play it's first performance 1998 in Berlin. This CD completes our recording of Zemlinsky's string quartets.
