Classical Net, Sept. 2016

The Harrington Quartet (Tomás Cotik & Keith Redpath, violins; Jennifer Kozoroz, viola; Emmanuel Lopez, cello, along with violist James Dunham, are right on target in each piece. I can't imagine a significantly finer performance of either quintet: in their hands this mostly light and buoyant music effervesces with spirit and energy, and with vivid color and infectious joy. Their attacks are clean and precise, their intonation flawless and gorgeous, and their tempos and phrasing well-judged and sensitive. In short, they perform as one musical body, collectively striking you as master musicians who've played together for many years... Once again, the performance is splendid... this disc is a must for Mendelssohn mavens, as well as for aficionados of 19th century chamber music... So you have two thumbs up on this splendid Centaur disc. Robert Cummings
