"Since our artists have adopted period instruments, they must demonstrate the sense of their project against the great ensembles (Budapest, Italiano, Berg, Taich, Mosaïques). The Cambini-Paris Quartet passes the test with elegance and panache."
"This unaffected and gorgeous music deserves to be played - and should be grateful to find champions in this promising group."
"Raramente come in questo caso la riscoperta e la rivalutazione della musica francese dell' Ottocento ha colto nel segno. Le composizioni che si ascoltano qui manifestano molteplici motivi di interesse e di attrattiva, motivi che i membri del Quartetto Cambini di Parigi sanno valorizzare in interpretazioni eleganti ed accurate nel gusto del suono e in una resa volta a fare della patina accademica un punto di forza anziché una debolezza."
Amadeus, Cesare Fertonani (Italy)
"May those who fear to be bored with a so-called philological interpretation be reassured : these young musicians are true philologists."
"In all three pieces, the group's intonation was nearly flawless (...) and first violinist Julien Chauvin carried the piece with effortless technique and beauty of tone."
"It is a Mozart at once serious and light, an excellent balance between style and sound, a true pleasure. Here too, this is joy of the first order."
"From an astounding naturalness, their instrumental play shines with a beautiful homogeneity of timbre and a constantly interesting and lively polyphony that is quite without ostentation."
"The clean phrasing and the perfect balance of the Cambini-Paris Quartet, masters of a historically well-versed classical repertoire, help us acquaint ourselves with the beautiful Opus 56 no. 2."
"The six works of Mozart shine forth under the elegant bows of the Cambini Quartet. The four accomplices possess an instinct for supportive momentum, unanimous accent and parallel effusions. The bright, vibrant colours which emanate from their play with light bows on gut strings enrich each movement with an almost orchestral resonance."
"As brave cavaliers, these four young musicians (...) perform these works of strict but nervous rhythm with impetuous bowing."
"Their new recording is a lovely surprise. The Quartet has rediscovered the composer Félicien David: a sublime display of French style."
"This is what is most surprising in the perfection of their playing, in the sureness of their phrasing, in the appropriateness of their contrasts. (...) Unearthing a repertoire, the Cambini-Paris musicians confirm their excellence."
"A luminous sonority, lyrical phrasing, rhythmic flourishes, intense expressivity and nobility of tone make this tribute stand out as trailblazing work."
"The Quatuor Cambini doesn't approach these unknown works, it grabs hold of them by vanquishing them, with an enduring commitment and vitality, and perfect mutual understanding."
"Magnifique programme qui a été interprété avec un véritable enthousiasme contagieux. (...)
La Symphonie de Haydn et Le Quatuor de Beethoven sont exécutés avec une fantastique maitrise du
style, un éveil des beautés cachées de ces deux chefs d’oeuvre"
"Cette (re)découverte tient aussi aux riches personnalités musicales des interprètes et de leurs instruments italients du XIXe siècle. Le Quatuor Cambini-Paris n'aborde pas ces oeuvres méconnues, il s'en empare en conquérant, avec un engagement et une vitalité de tous les instants, et une parfaite écoute mutuelle"
"Hyacinthe Jadin deserves the sensitivity and delicacy of the young Cambini Quartet (...) Their playing is soberly classical, but sensitive throughout (...) Hats off to these four virtuosos!"
"Playing on period instruments, the wonderful Cambini-Paris Quartet plays with remarkable intonation."
"Without doubt, this casket stands out because of its maturity and its sharpened, profound and expressive vision. Emotion remains the driving concern. Just and masterly"
