"Few ensembles can reach the level of the Fine Arts Quartet for the closely matched intensity of playing, to say nothing of the lyric gleam of the tone. There was not one hint of the gangbusters aggressiveness that has become popular with some ensembles. It was just beautiful playing through and through... As for the Ravel, its destiny could have been to have been placed in the hands of the Fine Arts Quartet, who played it with the exuberance as well as the gracefulness that are inherent in this ardent work...An ensemble of lyric purity, the Fine Arts Quartet takes a back seat to none."
