Critical Acclaim:
"The Serafin apply a silken finesse and gritty vibrancy to their duties and members of the ensemble take part in several other works with first-rate colleagues - pianist Charles Abramovic and bassoonist Eric Stomberg - to telling effect."
    -Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone October 2013

"performances are exceptional"
    -Gimbel, American Record Guide, January/February 2014

"The performances of the Serafin String Quartet are superb..."
"...this CD achieves the 'must-have' status that I accord to relatively few CDs that I review. Do be sure to acquire this one."
    -David DeBoer Canfield, Fanfare Magazine 2013

"beautifully phrased and well paced"
    -David Kettle, The Strad Magazine, January 2014
