Brahms: The String Quintets and SextetsThe Arts Desk‘s Graham Rickson names his Best Classical CDs of 2014 and our Brahms: The String Quintets and Sextets makes the cut!

“Also hailing from San Francisco are the Alexander String Quartet, whose recent Bartok and Shostakovich cycles on the Foghorn Classics label wouldn’t disappoint anyone. They’re joined by violist Toby Appel and cellist David Requiro on a new set of Brahms’s String Quintets and Sextets. There’s no dryness, no heaviness, in readings which exude common sense, warmth and sanity. Impeccably judged tempi, immaculate dynamic control – these are performances to live with, and remind one that Brahms’s music needn’t sound grumpy.” —Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk
