Performance:   Sonics:  
Having just been disappointed with the Praga Digitals Kocian Quartet: ...

Smetana, Sibelius: String Quartets - Kocian Quartet

... as I opened the wrapper on this Praga Digitals recording ... this time not the Kocian Quartet ... but now the Prazak Quartet ... I must admit I was rather nervous about what was to unfold. But - nothing to worry about here ...


Performance:
____________

Splendid. The Prazak Quartet's performance is polished, refined, and thoroughly professional throughout. Looking through my collection, I see I have been very impressed with another SACD of theirs:

Penderecki: Piano Sextet, Chamber Music - Prazak Quartet (on my recommended list)

And this one is a splendid performance too ...


Sonics:
______

Very clean sound - but a bit overly reverberant and shrill for my liking. I find the quality of sound of the (analog) Quartetto Italiano Haydn recordings

Haydn, Beethoven: String Quartets - Quartetto Italiano

to be far more natural. But this is minor quibble in a fine recording. Recommended.



Programme notes: tiny font - too much eye strain to read

SuperJewel box: No (old CD box)
Recording: Pure DSD
