This recording is the meeting of four musicians come-of-age who contribute their vast chamber music experience gathered in many different ensembles (Melos and Cherubini Quartets) for the sake of—no—from the need to play string quartets and, by doing so, to send off letters written to be played by music history’s most intimate of instrumental genres. The Heine Quartet’s disc of quartets by Brahms and Janacek on the Genuin label is not a typical recording debut for a young ensemble. The depth of these two works is too knowingly probed to be by some new band on the block eager to make waves. The Heine Quartet not only sends off “intimate letters” by two great composers but also discloses of the ensemble’s innermost views, too, a trait not commonly found in what is constantly referred to as the “music industry.”

"...Impressively dense, with a particularly convincing illumination of the drama…" Ensemble 6/06
