Gramophone reviews Beethoven - Complete String Quartets
"The Miró Quartet bring a distinctive blend of elegance and daring to Beethoven”.
" The way the Miró revel in the music's daring without sacrificing any of its surface polish remains impressive. Their playing is always articulate and balanced with care, even when they opt for a breakneck tempo - try, say, the last movement of No 5, which in their hands becomes a grinning, giddy homage to the 'Jupiter' Symphony's finale. [...] At their best, which is a fair percentage of this handsomely recorded cycle, the Miró get to the very core of Beethoven's art, and they do so by revealing the specific genius of each individual quartet."
