“…the Busch offer something very special – an ‘old world’ form of shining sincerity, dedication and truthfulness….at all points the Busch Quartet’s music-making is on a very exalted level.”
- Alan Sanders, CLASSIC RECORD COLLECTOR, Spring, 2008
"One of the major chamber music forces of the first half of the 20th Century, the [Busch String Quartet] was in many respects a perfect complement to the occasionally more celebrated Budapest Quartet. Whereas the Budapest’s Beethoven was purged of many of the performance practices typical of the earlier half of the century, the Busch did not hesitate to incorporate them….these parameters never spill over into tastelessness."
