"The Vienna Octet recorded just three works by Dvořák, all of which are included here. They are coupled with his most popular String Quartet, the so-called ‘American’ in a celebrated performance by the Janáček Quartet, and the Bagatelles for the unusual combination of two violins, cello and harmonium – delightful little pieces with the Vienna Philharmonia Quintet’s recording here receiving its first release on CD. ""the recording, clean and warm-toned, is the equal of the playing"" (Dvořák Quintet, Op. 77) Gramophone ""the finest and best recorded performance [of the 'American' Quartet]"" Gramophone"
