The music is said to be ingenious, dramatic, spontaneous, full of wit and humor, deeply human and powerful—are the four young Dutch musicians of the Rubens quartet referring to Joseph Haydn or Dmitri Shostakovich? Hearing the works by these two important string quartet masters makes clear that these attributes are true of both.
These two chamber masterpieces sound slender, full of vitality, the centuries separating them melted away by the universal validity the works have in common. Fortunately, the art of composers such as Haydn and Shostakovich helps each generation formulate new answers to the eternal questions: Why? And what for? Hear for yourself!

"A clear debut statement: with intelligent sound dramaturgy and a somewhat bitter tone, the young Dutch musicians give a sharp profile to the masters of human insight and enigmatic, profound humour."
Der Tagesspiegel, 10.09.06
