“[The Sackman piece] is a genuine string quartet and, therefore, a rarity. A truly memorable work. One hesitates to say it but it is almost a perfect work. Nicholson's quartet is the more profound in statement whereas the Sackman is more immediate. But both quartets are works of a rare and distinctive quality and the Bochmann Quartet's performances are convincing. I would not want to be without this disc.” - David Wright (MusicWeb)
“These are quartets of substance from two British composers... Dedicated playing from the Bochmann Quartet, with suitably close, focused sound.” - Richard Whitehouse (Gramophone)
“The Bochmann Quartet… prove inspired and dedicated performers in these substantial additions to the British string quartet canon.” - Hubert Culot (MusicWeb)
