The Volker String Quartet

“The Volker’s Ravel was appealingly visceral and full blooded even in its slow movement …. The Scherzo, particularly, was a glittering jewel box of sound, its pizzicato passages rich and woody.”  Kansas City Star

“Of Beethoven’s late quartets, this last one is a farewell alternately melancholy and jolly. The Volker played it with an unqualified richness and clarity …”  Kansas City Star
