Van Kuijk Quartet, Royal Pump Rooms, Leamington

"From the first note of Mozart’s Quartet in F to the final chord of the well-deserved Bizet encore, the playing was immaculate. Mozart’s feather-light touch provided plenty of opportunity for a sprightly tempo and a lightness of spirit. Sharp in focus and crystal clear, this was a perfect opener."

Matthew Salisbury, Leamington Observer

"Ideas were tender and cherished and a sense of elusive fantasy magicked their exploration of texture and colour. Technique was refined enough to bring fine focus to the work of the imagination."

Hilary Finch, The Times (London)

"Style, energy, and a sense of risk. These four young Frenchmen made the music smile."

"'Langsamer Satz' may be a relatively slight piece, but proved a fine demonstration of the Van Kuijk members’ prowess, whether in ripieno, solo or accompanying passages, making the most of contrasts, and especially effective and highly controlled at the conclusion, which fades into thin air."

Barnaby Page, Classical Source

"And the four young players certainly produced a sound which made the audience want to hear more of them. There was warmth and richness."
