"If you have yet to hear the more obscure works on offer here, by Kreutzer, Berwald, and indeed Borodin and Rimsky-Korsakov, the Wiener Oktett's charming playing will win you over with ease; while their style is not well-suited to music with gravitas, it is pitch-perfect in this recital. The result is two compact discs of chamber music heaven."
