Michelangelo Quartet's first Tour in the United States was a success. Here some excerpts from a review from the group's recital at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia by seenandheard-internatioanl.com magazine :
" The Michelangelo is clearly yet another of the superb quartets currently before the public."
" (Nobuko Imai) playing the viola as beautifully as ever, striking an ideal chamber-musical balance between discretion and assertiveness, and introducing the Russian theme in the third movement of the Beethoven quartet with characteristically firm and mahogany-tinted tone. Just as impressive was Mihaela Martin, deploying an unfailingly sweet sonority from top to bottom of the first-violin part and exercising leadership that was as strong as it was collegial. Second violinist Daniel Austrich and cellist Frans Helmerson filled their respective ranges in the texture with equal artistry, and dug into their sforzando repeated-note accpanimental figures in Beethoven’s first movement with fearsome vehemence".
