Ashley Wass and the Tippett Quartet rise magnificently to its challenges, striking the perfect balance between sheer OTT grandiloquence and intense and genuine feeling (...) this is a thrilling performance with the authentic all-or-nothing flavour.
Callum MacDonald, BBC Music
The Tippett Quartet's performances are little short of astonishing. To play any one of these quartets at so high a level of technical and musical accomplishment is no mean achievement, but to capture so perceptively the elusive nature of the cycle as a whole is extraordinary.
Julian Haylock, The Strad
...bold and innovative, the playing combined extraordinary technical accomplishment with flair and a bright, communicative spark(...)a quartet of such exciting ideas and vital interpretative insight that it promises to make a significant contribution to the realms of chamber music.
Geoffrey Norris, The Telegraph
Their intent is serious, their execution compelling, their ensemble immaculate.
Rick Jones, The Times
Combining a fascinating palette of 20th Century repertoire with interpretative conviction and a clear will to communicate, the Tippett Quartet displayed a thoroughly reviving sense of discovery.
Edward Bhesanis, the Strad
