The 2011 Gramophone Classical Music Guide singled out the Fine Arts Quartet's Fauré Quintets CD with pianist Cristina Ortiz on Naxos as a "Gramophone award-winner and recording of legendary status". The Guide also labeled it as, "Simply the best: An unrivalled version, a cornerstone of the catalogue. A real gem!", and listed it as among the Guide's top 100 recordings. "Ideally balanced and recorded, Cristina Ortiz and the Fine Arts Quartet offer performances that are warmly affectionate, fluent and musicianly to the core. Surpassing Domus's fine Hyperion disc, these are outstanding readings."
