“The ensemble’s precision … and technical finish are awesome.”
–The Boston Music Intelligencer

“… worthy of mention in the same sentence as the Emerson, Takacs, Tokyo, Borodin and even the classic Guarneri and Juilliard [quartets].”
–Oregon Arts Watch

“The Pacifica players bring the same finely blended ensemble, intensity of expression and sense of adventure to Zwilich’s score and the other works on the recording that they have displayed in Beethoven and Shostakovich quartets, live and on disc.”
-Lawrence Budmen
