Its most immediately striking quality is the vibrancy, flexibility and homogeneity of its sound: the first violinist's tone in particular is extraordinarily beautiful and intense. The players are technically extremely good, their ensemble is flawless and they can weave a seamless tapestry of lines and voices. Everything they do is carefully planned and worked out to the last detail, but they have succeeded in balancing perfect control with passionate involvement, youthful exuberance, and spontaneous expressiveness - a rare feat that gives their playing a feeling of total security as well as a powerful emotional impact.
