Pablo Casals Festival, Prades 2015

The Fine Arts Quartet demonstrated its technical skill and unfailing musical understanding...In the String Quartet No. 1 in A minor op. 41/1 by Schumann, the four string players from Chicago offered a striking interpretation.

"The four movements (" The Bird", one of the Opus 33 quartets of Joseph Haydn) were splendidly presented by the Fine Arts Quartet, which conferred Haydnienne grace and transparency on the writing."

"The Fine Arts Quartet opened the program with Haydn's Quartet Opus 77 # 1 / Hob.III.81. The four artists went right down to business capturing the spirit of the work with great ease. Right from the start of the opening Allegro moderato, one could understand that the artists were displaying the mixture of style and humanity inherent in this Quartet in G major with the most natural phrasing and refined colors. It wasn't easy to resist smiling."
